Over the past few weeks we have been monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 within our community. Taking into account the advisement of state and county health officials, we are taking the proactive step to limit person to person contact and slow the spread of the virus in our area, by temporarily closing our doors to the public.
This decision was not made lightly. The health and safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff is our number one priority. As a community gathering space it is our responsibility to do what we can to help keep our community healthy and happy. At this time, we will continue to monitor the situation, and will let you know when we reopen.
Staff will continue to be on-site to manage any public research inquiries online or phone only. Please check us out on Facebook and Instagram for the most up to date information.
Thank you for your patience and understanding,
The Edmonds Historical Museum is located in a beautifully restored 1910 Carnegie Library building in the heart of Edmonds at 118 5th Avenue North, just north of the fountain at Fifth and Main. There are two levels in the museum: the upper level provides display space for rotating exhibits throughout the year and a gift shop. The lower level consists of permanent displays detailing the history of Edmonds and interpreting the many changes that have taken place, from the age of exploration and discovery, through the founding and growth of the city, and up to the 1950s when the last mill closed. Highlights of this space include a reconstruction of a room from the 1891 Stevens Hotel, a restored jail cell from when the building served as City Hall and a working model of a shingle mill, representative of the mills that filled the waterfront at the turn of the century, a maritime room and an HO gauge train layout.
