We toured this museum about 10 years ago and wanted to take the time to take it in without our children with us...we loved it even more this time partially because of the audio tour that they've recently added. It costs $2 more for the audio tour but it is well worth it! If you like museums and enjoy learning... More

This museum is staffed with people well versed in the local history and conversant with the variety of items within the museum and the pioneer village. It is well laid out for a small town museum. Stairs preclude it from being AAD accessible, but there may be an elevator and I just didn't notice. Access to the lower floor could... More

We figured the kids would either love it or hate it. They loved it! Very impressive museum highlighting the Native American history of the area and the Pioneers that settled the area. The museum staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. The kids had a scavenger hunt to do which added to the fun of discovering more of the attractions. All... More

This is a really great small museum, won't take much time to visit and see. Very nice sense of history, lots of fun walking through the little village. The cabins and old buildings are real and were brought in from all over the state. Nice collection of Native American and Pioneer artifacts in the museum.

The extensiveness of the museum was a welcome surprise. There is a large quantity of indian artifacts, pictures and history. The pioneer village assembled from locations around the county were interesting and pleasant to walk around. All in all a very pleasant and educational experience.

Anytime we travel, we take the time to tour museums. This one is exceptional. Takes you way back to when Cashmere was settled, old farm equipment, waterwheel, outhouse, and interesting displays all over. It is outdoors to the village, so if it is chily, take a light jacket. We were there in May and it was just perfect

My husband and I were visiting Leavenworth for 2 days in late July and when we got a little tired of it, we drove to Cashmere. What a pleasant surprise! The town is very pretty with very attractive cottage homes around the downtown area. The museum is the top attraction for miles around. The displays cover a wide variety of... More

If you come here in the summer you absolutely must come earlier in the day, since Wenatchee/Leavenworth/Cashmere are very hot. However, if you get the outdoor portion done first, the indoors are nice and air-conditioned with an elaborate set of rooms set apart for artifacts, minerals/geological finds, antiques, etc. We always find something new that we never saw before. Huge... More

This place is amazing. So much history it is hard to remember it all. If you are in this area this a must see of things to do. The price is great and even better when we used our AAA discount. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
