“Worth seeing!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

This place is amazing. So much history it is hard to remember it all. If you are in this area this a must see of things to do. The price is great and even better when we used our AAA discount. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

“Amazing regional museum and collection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

This is a must see highlight of a visit to the Cashmere/Wenatchee/Leavenworth area. Adults are charged 7 dollars each, but you would have to look long and hard to find a more extensive collection of Native American artifacts, as well as an extensive gemological collection (particularly petrified wood samples) and artifacts from early white settlers. All the structures in the pioneer village are authentic log buildings moved to the museum grounds and generally dating from the 1880's. The museum has benefitted from the private donations of many individuals. It is well worth the time, money and effort to experience this museum.

“Cashmere surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

Didn't think this was going to be much, but when we got inside it was way better than I thought. The challenge they made up for finding things in the museum was great and the ladies that work there are very sweet and cheerful. A lot to see!

“hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

the pioneer museum is a hidden gem in the cascades. it is bigger then it looks from
the outside and the displays were neatly organized. besides native and settler artifacts
a display of local animals was well done. the out buildings all came from the local
area and are perfectly furnished. dont go by outside appearances, this is a must do

One of the best Indian artifacts collections on the West Coast. This well run community of Cashmere museum has outstanding art works and bronze works by artist such as William Reese and others.
