Travel Back To The 1800s At Washington’s Pioneer Farm Museum
The Evergreen State has some pretty unique museums, including a new
mermaid museum. But if you want to feel like you’ve traveled back to the 1880s for a day, just head to the Washington’s Pioneer Farm Museum and Ohop Indian Village. Located in Eatonville, these exhibits are dedicated to showing us what life was like in the Pacific Northwest way back then. Luckily, you can keep your smart phone and modern technologies with you on this trip to the past!
The Pioneer Farm Museum is located at 7716 Ohop Valley Rd E in Eatonville, about 35 minutes from Mt. Rainier National Park.
With the help of some friendly tour guides, you'll be able to see what the homesteading life was like.
The museum is divided into two parts, the pioneer village and the Ohop Indian Village, the latter of which is open seasonally.
The Pioneer Farm Museum is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing living history, environmental, and cultural education opportunities to the public.
There are two public tours from which to choose: the Pioneer Farm Tour and the Native American Seasons Tour.
Currently, you can schedule both on the website. While some changes have been made due to current conditions, both tours are still available.
Keep in mind, these tours are quite "hands on," and you never know where you might end up.
Needless to say, kids of all ages tend to have a great time here.
The museum also offers a variety of group tours and experiences, plus programs like the Pioneer Living Experience and the Salish Living Experience.
You can even take the Nature Trail Guided Tour, a 90-minute hike through a forested path in the Ohop Valley.
While events at the museum have been paused for awhile, rest assured they'll return in the future.
Check out Founder's Day next October, a fun day of free music, coffee, cider, desserts, and games.
And of course, there will be some four-legged friends who are excited to see you, too.
After all, what's a farm without some adorable farm animals?
