Giving to the Museum

The Harbor History Museum is Your Museum!

The Harbor History Museum is a treasure in our community and your support ensures the rich history of your region will be shared and enjoyed for generations to come. 

Every day the Harbor History Museum is keeping the past alive through a wide variety of community programs, restoration projects, and special exhibitions. From restoring the 65-foot purse seiner, the Shenandoah and one-room Midway Schoolhouse, to teaching thousands of students the history of the Gig Harbor Peninsula through the Pioneer School Experience Program, the museum creates vibrant and engaging learning opportunities for residents and visitors of every age. In addition, our exhibitions provide one-of-a-kind opportunities for hands-on exploration of our region's rich history.

We invite you to be part of the story and share your legacy by supporting our mission.
