Anacortes Museum Closed Again as of 11-17

The Anacortes Museum closed again to the public as of 11-17. Governor Inslee has ordered restaurants and bars to shutdown indoor service and museums are on the closure list in an effort to slow the Coronavirus pandemic. 

Museum staff will continue to respond to phone calls and e-mails, and our website is a portal to a wealth of photographs, movies, yearbooks, newspapers, exhibits and other history.
