Programs: Opened on September 18, 2010, the Harbor History Museum programs  include: a hands-on interactive historical museum, on-site education programs consisting of pioneer school experience in the restored one-room Midway School, restoration of the 65-foot Skansie-built purse seiner the Shenandoah, national traveling exhibits, and a robust schedule of lectures and workshops.

The mission of the Harbor History Museum is to create opportunities to experience the heritage of the greater Gig Harbor communities. We do this by collecting, preserving and sharing the history of this area. Our vision is to be the cornerstone that provides a sense of identity for our community. The museum fulfills its mission and vision by providing a museum and educational programs serving residents, visitors, researchers, and students. The Society distinguishes its museum from others in the area by its commitment to building bridges between the past, present, and future.
