    Sorry, I haven’t been following this as closely as I should. How does the pay-to-visit thing work for FOC members? Do we have to purchase a pass, and if so, daily or annual? Is a pass of any kind included in the membership? (I saw mention that annual passes were mailed. I haven’t received anything.)

    Thanks for helping to straighten me out.

    Confusedly,
    Marge

      Marge – The City of Seattle implemented the admission program in February 2013, requiring an admission charge at the door. Currently, FOC Members don’t automatically receive an annual pass so you would need to purchase a day pass when you visit, or an annual pass if you visit often. We are , however, hoping that starting in 2014, all annual passes will be bundled FOC memberships which makes more sense to us.
