Mason County Historical Museum

History comes to life in Mason County's most extensive collection of historic documents, photos and artifacts from Mason County's timber, shellfish, farming and early pioneer days.
Located conveniently in the heart of historic downtown Shelton, the Mason County Historical Museum is open to the public, offering free WIFI as well as research and meeting tables.
The museum sells local historical books, calendars and other mementos depicting life along the shores of Puget Sound, Hood Canal, and in the old growth forests as they were explored and logged in the 19th and 20th Centuries.
Inquire about our free Shelton walking tours and maps. Our ongoing used book sale features hundreds of unique and out-of-print titles––most are only $1 or 50 cents. Come in, browse, and meet our friendly, helpful staff and volunteers.

Mason County Historic Museum maintains a public library of historical materials at the downtown museum including photos, tapes, letters, diaries, periodicals and newspapers.
