Did you know that museums have some of the best air conditioning and humidity controls around? Our spacious building will remain cool all day. In response to the unusual heatwave, we’re offering free admission and an opportunity to cool down while you explore new exhibitions like Crossing Boundaries: Portraits of a Transgender West and REMEMBRANCE: The Legacy of Executive Order 9066, as well as visiting your favorites in the Great Hall of Washington History, and the state’s largest model train layout on public view!
Masks are required while visiting the Washington State History Museum. Please enter the building through the Museum Store door on the plaza across from Anthem Cafe.
