Public Access Update

The Museum has been actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and is in close contact with the Chelan-Douglas Health District. We stand together with our cultural partners, public agencies, and civic and community partners to slow the spread of COVID-19 and support the efforts to do what is necessary and effective to stem the outbreak. In accordance with the Governor's four phase plan for re-opening Washington, the Museum and the Wells House are closed to the public. We will reopen to the public when Chelan County moves to Phase 3 in the state’s reopening plan.

While our buildings are closed, our staff continue to work both on and off site finding ways to be there for our community. To bring the Museum to you, we offer online content that you and your family can access digitally. Visit our blog to see our online classes, tutorials and virtual tours. Stay up to date on Museum news by following our blog, subscribing to our email newsletter, and by following us on social media. If you have any specific questions please email us at

We appreciate your continued support and understanding and we are looking forward to seeing you soon.


To gather, engage, and educate people to celebrate and preserve the history, arts, sciences, and rich diversity of our region.

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 1917 and 1935; both served as post offices and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
