The Kitsap County Historical Society has been collecting and exhibiting artifacts from our region since 1948. Tens of thousands of objects, photographs, and archival materials preserve the history and culture of our region. Through selected exhibition of these artifacts, the museum shares many of the stories of Kitsap. Our popular permanent exhibits show the history of our region, allow a stroll down a local Main Street from the early 1900s, and offer hands-on learning. Rotating exhibits, developed by museum staff, community members, and guest curators, draw from the collections and the community to display new themes and historical topics.
