Fort Nisqually Living History Museum offers a wide variety of special events throughout the year. Your membership in the Fort Nisqually Foundation allows you to enjoy them all (with the exception of the Candlelight Tour and Friday at the Fort) for one low price.

In addition, the Fort Nisqually Foundation sponsors two fundraising events - Friday at the Fort and Bonfires, Beaver Pelts and Bogeymen: Halloween Storytelling. We encourage you to attend them all as each offers a unique and special look at Fort Nisqually's story and the history of the mid-1800s.

Fort Nisqually Foundation members are also encouraged to attend the Members Only Exhibit openings three times a year when Fort Nisqually changes their fascinating temporary exhibit area in the fort's Education Building.

Event Days at Fort Nisqually

Even learning to do laundry with a wash board and tub of water is great fun during one of Fort Nisqually's special event days.
