Having lived in Wenatchee back in the '60's, many memories resurfaced in my mind of when I was a college kid picking apples in the valley. This museum is a "must see" for those interested in "the way it was."

Over the years we have visit this museum and have only noticed minimal improvements. This is a typical museum and one we don't believe needs another visit or donation from us. This is my opinion.

Small museum in an old post office that's worth a 30-60 minute visit whether you're an adult or with kids. Cool exhibits about aviation in Wenatchee, trains, fossils, etc. plus temporary visits.

Our special museum has a great selection of history and art. As a newcomer to the valley, seeing the progression of agriculture and industry was very interesting. There is a revolving art exhibit too along with a beautiful pipe organ.
