Update from our Director

Did you know that many of the artifacts, photographs, and stories that the Issaquah History Museums preserve have been here for more than 100 years? Thanks to support from people like you, over the last year Issaquah History Museums was able to share Issaquah's remarkable history with 21,000 people -- 7000 more than 2013! Thanks to people like you, the symbols of our community’s heritage may be here 100 years from now, for more generations to enjoy and learn from.

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 assembling an exciting lineup of events for the coming year. To kick it off, join us on January 10th for a rousing discussion about Issaquah's architecture in the comfort of the historic Issaquah Train Depot Museum's freight room.
