History Museum Museum
The Yakima Valley Museum offers historical exhibits on the Yakima Valley—its natural history, American Indian culture, pioneer life, early city life, and the roots and development of the Valley’s fruit industry. The museum also has a superb collection of horse-drawn vehicles, from stagecoach to hearse; a historical exhibit and reconstruction of the Washington D.C. office of former Yakima resident and environmentalist, Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas; and a changing schedule of special exhibitions.

  • It's like Night at the Museum comes alive because it's haunted but it's really cool though
  • Awesome small museum in our city. Nice facility and folks working there. Also great Hall for rent, inside. Nice, nice.
  • I love the museum. It has lots of art, but also really cool exhibits and local history.
  • Great exibit​, wide variety of different topics, wonderfully done.
  • Really enjoyed this museum. Got a good overview the area's geology, native culture and agricultural history. Especially enjoyed the small, but excellent exhibits of indigenous textiles and ceramics. Also enjoyed seeing the old carriages, stagecoaches and work wagons. Very helpful staff and volunteers. Hope to return and spend more time!
