The State Capital Museum is closed for renovations until further notice. However, public programs will continue as planned and the Coach House and grounds are still available for rental.


Note: The parking lot of the State Capital Museum will be closed to all non-construction vehicles from October 13, 2014 to approximately December 1, 2014 as we begin a roof repair project on the Lord Mansion and Coach House. The City of Olympia parking enforcement has granted permission for unlimited parking on the city streets surrounding the museum complex during this project. 


The State Capital Museum and Outreach Center is located in the historic Lord Mansion, seven blocks south of the capital campus in Olympia. Exhibits on regional Native American history and on Olympia as Washington's capital bring area history alive. The building also houses outreach programs of the Washington State Historical Society, including the Women's History Consortium, Heritage Resource Center, National History Day, and Traveling Exhibits Service. For more information about the Lord Mansion, events and outreach programs, please contact the State Capital Museum and Outreach Center at 360-753-2580.
