The Spokane Valley Heritage Museum Has Reopened!

Mask Required

Thanks to Governor Inslee’s decision to allow museums to open with limited capacity, the Spokane Valley Heritage Museum reopened its doors to the public on Saturday, September 19th.

We want to give all our visitors the best and safest viewing experience. To this end the Museum is frequently cleaning commonly touched surfaces. We ask visitors in small groups to stay with their group and to stay 6 feet apart from other groups or visitors. In accordance with Washington State’s mandate, masks are required to be worn while visiting the museum.

The Museum had its doors closed to the public for 6 months; however, the Museum has still been serving the community. During the closure, the Museum has continued to respond to inquiries from across the country for research and photo orders.

The Museum thanks all the community investors and everyone who has donated or ordered photos during the time of our closure. All the contributions have helped us made it through these dark times.

Please check out the Museum’s website and Facebook page for more news on upcoming exhibits and events.
