This museum will change your view of small town museums. Displays are very professional and up to date. Themes are rotated through so return visits are the norm. Come visit and you won't be disappointed.

Moses Lake has a nice little museum that offers a variety of historical displays. There is always something to explore or learn about. From early farming days to a collection of hearsts to potatoes to paintings. Interesting happenings in this great little town.
