  • I think anyone who visits Ellensburg should stop in here. Small but has some of the most amazing things from the past. They also have a very fun scavenger hunt for the kids. They have a nice selection of local info books and a few cute souvenirs at a very nice family friendly cost. We had an amazing time.
  • Central Washington historical artifacts are artfully displayed in a clean and orderly fashion. Domestic connections from the past are well documented with thoughtful antidotes that tie in with world history. Only an optional donation meets the visitor for the visit. Worth your time certainly.
  • Big museum. Looks small from outside. Interesting exhibits.
  • Nice museum. Excellent mineral and petrified wood exhibit, with polished pieces labeled with type of tree.
  • Such an awesome free museum.
