Having lived in Wenatchee back in the '60's, many memories resurfaced in my mind of when I was a college kid picking apples in the valley. This museum is a "must see" for those interested in "the way it was."

It was a nice experience for learning the history of the area. Some wonderful old photos of the valley and stories of the important people the helped make it what it is today. A perfect addition to date day!

They offer free admission on first fridays of the month for now at least. That's when we went because we weren't sure what we would see. This place is well worth a visit and we will be back again. We were there for quite some...More

Over the years we have visit this museum and have only noticed minimal improvements. This is a typical museum and one we don't believe needs another visit or donation from us. This is my opinion.

Small museum in an old post office that's worth a 30-60 minute visit whether you're an adult or with kids. Cool exhibits about aviation in Wenatchee, trains, fossils, etc. plus temporary visits.

Our special museum has a great selection of history and art. As a newcomer to the valley, seeing the progression of agriculture and industry was very interesting. There is a revolving art exhibit too along with a beautiful pipe organ.
