For more than 60 years, the Washington County Museum has played a vital role on Oregon’s cultural stage. It is in a unique position to help our community bridge differences to become an environment that embraces and celebrates diversity. By serving as an archive, a genealogical resource and an interpreter of our shared history, the Museum can help us use the past as a lens through which to view and understand our present
Building on the successes of our own past and learning from our challenges, the Museum has expanded to include a second facility in downtown Hillsboro. By relocating and expanding the galleries and community service areas to the Hillsboro Civic Center Plaza Building, the Museum has added needed and upgraded space for exhibits and education facilities. This site allows for larger exhibit space (13,000 SF), increasing hands-on community activity areas, new program expansion opportunities and enhanced visibility to the community.
To continue serving the people of Washington County, sparking imagination, honoring our collective history and providing opportunities for reflection and learning, we need strong support from you, our local businesses.
