  • My daughter and I always visit historic places when we travel, and were quite impressed with this museum. Lots of very interesting artifacts and pieces that illustrate the fascinating history of this ...  more »
  • A small museum, tells the history of the small town of alinsbergh, his entry is free, located in the city centre, there are several local restaurants around it, you can reach it on foot, I would recommend a visit if you're interested, as for me I didn't like very much.

  • A great place to visit with the family. Several hands on activities the kids can enjoy, interesting geology samples, and of course the history of Ellensburg. Plus it's free.
  • This museum is kinda cool, but they manage an apartment complex above the museum called cadwell apartments, and it took them over a month to decide that i was not eligible for either of their 2 units. I guess they were to busy dealing managing a small town museum that nobody ever goes to.
  • Fantastic displays and a lot of good history. Great place to take the family for some fun learning.
  • 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.
  • Very interesting museum full of cultural and natural historical artifacts from the early years of the area
