The Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that operates in partnership with the City of Wenatchee.
This blog is part of the public face of the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center and is a medium for education, storytelling, information and the preservation of Wenatchee Valley History and Culture.
Housed in two historic downtown buildings that served early Wenatchee as post offices, the museum inspires dynamic connections to the unique heritage and history of the Wenatchee Valley.
We are proud to share a variety of exhibits interpreting life in the Valley of the mid-Columbia dating back to the Ice Age. From 11,500-year-old Clovis points discovered in an East Wenatchee orchard through trade goods used by Native Americans in centuries past to household articles used in Wenatchee homes around 1900, the past comes alive at the Wenatchee Valley Museum. More recent history is highlighted as well: the landing in Wenatchee of the world’s first trans-Pacific flight in 1931, a comprehensive look at Washington’s apple industry, and ever-changing art and cultural exhibits in our Main Gallery.
