A walk through the past is recreated in Grant County's Historical Museum & Village. This historic museum, situated on 3.75 acres, has a complex of buildings, historic settings, colorful displays and objects that will fascinate even the youngest in your family. This museum provides you the opportunity to actually enter the buildings and experience what pioneer life of a bygone era was all about. Also, see the Village come to life at the annual Living Museum weekend during the first part of June. Call or write the museum for details. 

The Village has over 30 buildings preserving the historical legacy of Grant County. Also featured is a restored one room school house (circa 1910), a complete authentic pioneer homestead, an old-time saloon, a blacksmith shop featuring a working force, an original pioneer line cabin, a print shop with antique printing equipment, the Village's very own camera shop which houses over 300 vintage cameras and the list goes on and on! Travel with us back in time at the Grant County Historical Museum & Village.

Mandatory tour, not self guided, orange jump suits staring us down, not family friendly

Excellent. After one sees the usual artifacts in the main building they take you around to each of the out buildings that all are filled with additional items related to the building. For example a school has school items and the pharmacy and blacksmith has those items. We spent 2 hours there and did not see it all due to our time limit. A staff member eacorts you to each building.

This turned out to be a lot more interesting than it looks like it would be from the street. Wish it was more focused on Ephrata!
