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.

This is a must see highlight of a visit to the Cashmere/Wenatchee/Leavenworth area. Adults are charged 7 dollars each, but you would have to look long and hard to find a more extensive collection of Native American artifacts, as well as an extensive gemological collection (particularly petrified wood samples) and artifacts from early white settlers. All the structures in the... More

Didn't think this was going to be much, but when we got inside it was way better than I thought. The challenge they made up for finding things in the museum was great and the ladies that work there are very sweet and cheerful. A lot to see!

One of the best Indian artifacts collections on the West Coast. This well run community of Cashmere museum has outstanding art works and bronze works by artist such as William Reese and others.

I have been to the Chelan County Museum and Pioneer Village several times with family members of all ages. Their Pioneer Village is a wonderful experience and re is always a new display or exhibit. On special weekends they have volunteers dressed up in pioneer attire and stage reinactments of history in the area. Pack a lunch and plan on... More

We had a great time here! My daughter got a little scavenger hunt sheet & off we went, exploring Native American artifacts, prehistoric exhibits, and (the best part) the Pioneer Village. She had been told that if she found all the items on the sheet, including a special brass elephant, she would get 2 prizes. We enthusiastically searched all the... More

Having grown up in East Wenatchee, I have fond memories of visiting this museum as a child. I remember thinking that the outdoor pioneer village was the coolest museum ever. Going back this summer to visit with my husband and 8 year old daughter was nostalgic, especially because little had changed. I was very pleased to see that the pioneer... More

For a fee you can wander around this museum to look at some Native American artifacts, artwork, some pioneer related items, and a lot of taxidermy critters. You can then venture outside to see a variety of small buildings, such as cabins, a small jail, a church, etc. If you are in the area and want to kill an hour... More

We spent about an hour here and thoroughly enjoyed it - lots to see and learn about! The museum has loads of interesting artifacts and information, and the pioneer village is quite interesting to see and wander through. Stopping here was a very enjoyable learning experience about the area's history! Unfortunately we were a bit strapped for time, otherwise we... More
