The Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center gathers and educates people to celebrate and preserve the history, arts, sciences and rich diversity of this region and its people.
The Museum has its roots in the former Columbia River Archaeological Society, founded in 1920. In 1939 Wenatchee Carnegie Building became the museum's first home, where it stayed until it outgrew the quarters in the mid-1970's. In 1978 the Museum open its new space housed in two former Federal Government buildings in downtown Wenatchee. The buildings are now a local landmark on the National Register of Historic Sites.
The basement houses the museum collections. The floors above contain a genealogical library, historic preservation and arts commission offices, and exhibits. The exhibits connect local community members and visitors to the rich heritage and diversity of the Wenatchee Valley.
