Harbor History Museum
The mission of the Harbor History Museum is to create opportunities to experience the heritage of the greater Gig Harbor communities. We do this by collecting, preserving, and sharing the rich history of this area. Our vision is to be the cornerstone that provides a gathering place and a sense of identity for our community.
The museum offers 7,000 square feet of permanent galleries showcasing the rich, unique heritage of the Gig Harbor Peninsula. Unique artifacts, video kiosks, hands-on exhibits, computer interactives, and a small theater bring Peninsula history to life in our permanent galleries.
Our collections number more than 29,000 artifacts, images and archival material including letters, ephemera and scrapbooks. While diverse in material, these collections date from the mid-1800s up to near present-day. All of them have connections to the people, places, and events in Gig Harbor-Peninsula history, including such areas known as Arletta, Artondale, Cromwell, Rosedale, Crescent Valley, Horsehead Bay, Point Fosdick, Wollochet, Shore Acres, Midway, Sea Cliff, Sunrise Beach, and Peacock Hill.
Our collecting policy requires that all artifacts, images, and archival materials in the Harbor History Museum collection directly relate to the people, places, and events in Gig Harbor-Peninsula history.
