What can I see and do at the Sequim Museum and Arts Center?

There are a number of permanent exhibits at the museum as well as occasional temporary exhibits that change every few months. All have some sort of connection to Sequim history.

Probably the most notable exhibit is that which came from the Manis Mastodon archaeological dig that happened in the late 70s and early 80s. These are the remains of an American Mastodon which was unearthed from land belonging to a local farmer.

Other exhibits have profiled Klallam Indian history, notable area barns and other structures, pioneer medicine, and many other subjects. In addition, one local artist is profiled each month and honored at a First Friday Art Walk reception.

The Sequim Museum and Arts Center also oversees the management of the Dungeness Schoolhouse, located about five miles north of Sequim on the banks of the Dungeness River. The schoolhouse, built in 1893, can be toured by appointment and has also been a location for classes and other programs.
