Discover Your Story at The Museum

Our mission is to connect you with our region's unique heritage through our creative programs, exhibits, and publications. We tell the story of the people who built our communities: their hopes and dreams, failures and successes, and the forces that shaped them. And, of course, we want to foster an appreciation for the preservation and celebration of our collective community memory.

The Wenatchee Valley Museum is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that relies on memberships, donations and grant funding. We receive significant annual support from the cities of Wenatchee and East Wenatchee, for which we are grateful. Our two historic buildings (owned by the City of Wenatchee), connected by a sky bridge on the second floor, were built in 1915 and 1937; both served as post offices and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
