“It's the State Capital Museum; Not the Capitol (bldg.) museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

The State Capital Museum and Outreach Center is located in the historic Lord Mansion, seven blocks south of the capitol campus (Capitol Building) in Olympia. The museum is dedicated to preserving and interpreting the history and culture of Washington and features two floors of exhibits. Open Saturdays. Costs $2 or less. Worth the visit if only to check out the former mansion and the grounds.

“In Olympia and Tacoma”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

Great old mansion in Olympia - Not always open. Tacoma has the main museum filled with lots of interesting displays about Washington's fascinating history.

“Good museum--combine with a tour of the capital building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

A decent though small museum. When added to a free tour of the capital building it's a great outing to teach kids about history and the legislative process.
