Edmonds, WA: Planning that very special wedding, 50th anniversary celebration, or other once-in-a-lifetime occasion? Looking for the perfect setting for your office retreat or service club event? Want a great location that’s close to coffee shops, restaurants, and stunning Puget Sound and Olympic Mountain views that won’t break your budget?
Located in the heart of downtown Edmonds, the Museum is housed in the freshly-restored 1910 Carnegie Library, a classic example of Georgian revival architecture. The handicap-access building features a kitchen where you can stage your pre-prepared food and snack items, lots of open floor space, and plenty of folding tables and chairs.
Don’t want to bring your own food? Dozens of local restaurants and coffee shops are just steps away, offering a wide range of traditional and ethnic fare to fit any budget. Dine in or take out and enjoy a picnic lunch taking in the Puget Sound and mountain views from one of Edmonds’ many beaches.
