NCHM Board of Directors has adopted a plan for reopening and will be following Gov. Jay Inslee’s guidelines.  Masks or face coverings will be required to enter the building and hand sanitizer will be provided at the door and throughout the museum. Face masks will be provided for those who do not have one, and gloves will be available to view exhibits.  Most exhibits will be no touching.  One-way traffic and social distancing will be emphasized.  Cleaning and sanitizing of the building is being done for the reopening.  The number of visitors at one time will be limited:  15 for the sanctuary and 10 for the basement.

Board members have continued to oversee the operations of the museum, and exhibits have been enhanced and moved around, with more interpretation for your viewing.  It has been seven months since we were open to the public and we are excited to see some visitors again.  At this time, we are unable to schedule  events, but hope that will change soon.

Small Group Tours for families and schools are available by appointment.  Family Tours may be scheduled immediately, School Tours will begin in January.  Groups will be limited to 5-10 people.   Research time is also available by appointment.  Call (360) 247-5800 and leave a message.  Your call will be returned to arrange a visit.

The 2020 Raffle Quilt is available for your viewing and tickets are for a sale at $1.00 each.  The quilt was crafted by the Chelatchie Quilters of Chelatchie Prairie.  The drawing will take place on Nov. 7.  The proceeds benefit the Capital Improvements Fund.
