Issaquah History Museums

Artifact Donations

It is your story, Issaquah's story, that Issaquah History Museums are preserving. One of the best ways to tell that story is through the objects, photos, letters, and journals that Issaquah's story-makers have left as their legacy. It is the mission of Issaquah History Museums  to preserve these items, provide researchers access to them, and display them as appropriate to share Issaquah's story. By helping to share this story, you are strengthening our community's roots, and building a common foundation that will delight and inform generations to come.
