A New Place In Time
A new kind of museum
The new Harbor History Museum will be an inviting, dynamic, and engaging way to experience the history of the Gig Harbor area. You’ve never seen a museum like this. Far from the typical history museum—with shelves of dusty artifacts displayed out of context, far removed from the people and events they represent—the Harbor History Museum will be a vital community center. The museum will bring to life our community’s past, and illustrate through engaging exhibits and programs how that past has shaped our present and informs our future.
The Harbor History Museum Capital Campaign
The Gig Harbor Peninsula Historical Society has embarked on an ambitious goal of raising $10.08 million to build the Harbor History Museum for our community. The museum will bring this history alive while providing a community gathering place in the heart of the harbor. It’s a place that will educate and inspire while preserving our area’s unique past. Located on the waterfront in downtown Gig Harbor, the museum will transform a warehouse district into a vibrant community corridor.
