Update from our Director

As you can tell by the list of events on this page, we are having a busy spring, with a bit of something for everyone! Are you in the mood for tales of debauchery, murder, and mayhem? Dress for a night on the town and join us for our extremely popular historic pub crawl. Or, join us in the comfort of the historic Depot to explore a contemporary art exhibit. If something even more moving strikes your fancy, grab some friends and family and hop on the Issaquah Valley Trolley. You never know who you might see on board!

Every year we reach out to people like you to ask for help in covering the museums' most basic needs. Project grants and corporate support cover the cost of special events, exhibits, and other programming, but it is the ongoing support from community members like you that keep the foundation of the Issaquah History Museums strong. Please help us protect Issaquah’s heritage by ensuring that we have the funds we need to care for it. Join us or renew your membership today!
We are excited to be participating in Seattle Foundation's GiveBIG event again this year! May 5th from midnight to midnight is our community's biggest day of giving, and donations made on that day will have extra impact. To participate, visit our Seattle Foundation GiveBIG page
