Our diligent and hard-working volunteers continue to make huge strides towards creating a digital inventory of all of the objects in the Collection. This is an exciting and necessary step in progressing our museum toward our final goal of having a permanent home.
The Museum, established in 1954, has gone through several stages of development – and has had some tremendous set-backs. It is comprised of more than 40,000 artifacts – some large, some small. While the Museum has been located in several buildings, it has never had a permanent home that would allow it to be a destination museum. This is what we are striving to achieve – creating a permanent exhibition and storage facility accessible to the public.
The Museum will serve the greater City of Everett community through leadership and collaborations with local organizations and the operation of the Museum. We will strive to educate all demographics about their cultural heritage and enhance the lives of youth and adults by providing educational programming that appeal to everyone. The Museum will engage individuals who both have an interest in historical preservation, as well as those who are new to the idea and to entertain them with new and unusual programs and exhibitions. The organization will work to enhance and preserve the permanent collection, as well as evolve the idea of what a historical museum is to a community.
Please help us reach our goal by volunteering your time and/or resources. We need you to make us a success!
