Exhibits & Collections
American Indian art, crafts, and artifacts that focus o the Yakima Indians and other indigenous cultures of the plateau region. Beautiful and rare examples of beadwork, basketry, woven bags, parfleches, costumes, and other objects.

Historic tools, household items, clothing, furniture orchard equipment, and one of the largest collections of carriages and early motorized vehicles west of the Mississippi brings history to life in exhibits which trace the settlement of the Yakima Valley from the earliest pioneers to the modern farmworkers who maintain the bounty of the "fruitbowl of the nation."

The Children's Underground is an educational hands-on learning center that includes videos, games, and play area.

The Special Exhibitions at the Yakima Valley Museum are ever-changing, guaranteeing a new experience with each visit.

The H.M. Gilbert Homeplace, a late-Victorian farmhouse filled with period furnishings, is only three short blocks from the Museum. A tour of this 1898 home of the Gilbert family gives a taste of life on an early Yakima orchard.
