Well, history isn't exactly the steamy part of your romance novel, lol... But I love learning state history and all the exhibits are absolutely wonderful. I'm a slow explorer and really enjoy examining details so I will be back to see the rest of the museum at some point.

Many people visit places and are completely unaware of the forces that forged the culture and community. Take a walk thru this museum and experience history to better understand the present. It's a wonderful place for all ages. I never get tired of visiting.

Interesting way to see Washington State History. The changing exhibits reveal an aspect of the past we may not have known about. The gift shop has many high quality Washington soveniers. Don't miss the blankets!
