Update from our Director

Our last history hike in the woods was a grand success. We'll be back in March with more. If you have a hankering for history in the interim, though, don't fret! We have scheduled a series of play dates in the cozy interior of the historic Depot Museum, as well as more of our popular history pub crawls, which we offer in collaboration with the Downtown Issaquah Association.

The Issaquah Valley Trolley is closed for the season; however, the Santa Trolley will be back for one day on November 28th.

Throughout the 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!
