Fort Nisqually Living History Museum is a restoration of the Hudson’s Bay Company outpost on Puget Sound. It provides a rare setting for all generations to explore the early history of our state and learn about the life experiences of those who settled here.
Visitors are encouraged to meet the re-enactors and explore the buildings, which will be open and staffed, and which include two new buildings added last year. The Education Building and the Visitor Center were opened to the public in June 2009 and have brought a new level of historic accuracy to the fort.
Admission is $6/adults; $5/seniors, military, students; $4/Ages 3-17 and $3/Ages 4-12.
