​We will also be open 2:00 – 5:00 on Wednesdays during the Farmers Market starting June 20. If you’re not sure of the hours on any particular day, look for Uncle Sam
The 100th anniversary of the end of WWI will be on November 11, 2018. It is fitting that we look back and remember the young men and some older ones who came to the newly formed Camp Lewis and other bases. Some had never seen indoor plumbing or came from homes without electricity. They traveled across the world to fight in a country where English was not the local language. Now, you see what they carried and used and think about how they must have felt. And also remember those who did not come back. 

Remembering World War I
The new exhibit, “Remembering World War I,” will be at the Museum through October.

The Museum Holiday Shop at the Steilacoom Historical Museum will be open for shopping Saturday, November 17, and is a great place to find unique and exciting gifts.

This year some special wooden holiday items will be available as well as beautiful journals and boxes.

On that first Saturday, local author and SHMA member Susanne Bacon will also be at the store to sign and sell her latest book in the Wycliff series, Clean Cuts. Note that on Sunday, November 25th, the Museum Store will celebrate Museum Sunday, a national and international celebration of support for museum stores and their missions. More than 500 museums from 10 countries are slated to participate, including the Steilacoom Historical Museum.
