We have enjoyed our visits, particularly when they had an exhibit of older Girl Scout stuff (May 2014)(I'm a Lifetime GS). Good overview of local history. Can easily fill an hour/90 minutes depending on the level of detail you're into reading.

Various displays of the history of the area, with different areas from the home to the office. Also displays by service groups and a good display of antique cars.

This is a museum not to miss on a visit to Ellensburg. A pity they are closed on Sundays. Museum covers a choice of subjects: historic automobiles, firearms, minerals, children's toys, clothes, mining. Everything related to Ellensburg and vicinity. Collection of minerals is truly beautiful,...More
