Explore the San Juan Historical Museum
An interesting addition to your exploration of all Friday Harbor, Roche Harbor and San Juan Island is the San Juan Historical Museum. Located just a few blocks from the ferry landing and downtown Friday Harbor, Washington State, USA, the Museum is the home of Music on the Lawn, the Annual Pig War Picnic, and a number of interesting workshops and speakers throughout the year. Come see our brand of American History through the exhibits of 19th century life on the Island, replete with photographs and stories from the pioneers and the mix of people and cultures who changed the life of the Island over the years. Construction and development of the exciting new Museum of History and Industry is underway this summer, with the Atrium and Fishing Exhibits expected to be available for your exploration by May.
The San Juan Historical Museum may have history as a focus, but there is always plenty going on right here and now. Check out our Facebook page for the latest posts, and be sure to check out “At This Point In Time”, the ongoing blog written by the Museum Curator. Each page of this website provides information about volunteer possibilities, special events, unusual and unique finds from our collection, information about educational opportunities and partnerships, and even historical books for sale through the Museum. We welcome you to come discover the Museum, take lots of photos to share with your friends and family, and get a good feel for the culture and history of this beautiful island.
