Organizational History

Our organization began in 1976 with an idea on behalf of local Bicentennial Committee members to create a community museum. A Steering Committee prepared by-laws, policies, and created an exhibit committee, and by 1977, the city jail was being used as our first artifact storage area with exhibits going up in loaned spaces throughout Sequim. By 1979, Mayor Oliver Hamilton was cutting the ribbon to the doors of our Exhibit Center. In 1992, the then-named Sequim-Dungeness Museum merged with the Peninsula Cultural Arts Center to become the Museum & Arts Center in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley. In 1995, our organization grew further by acquiring the historical Dungeness Schoolhouse, which we own and operate as a rentable venue for community use.

The Museum & Arts Center is governed by a Board of Trustees. A President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer form the Executive Committee. An Advisory Council assists the Board members in decision making matters and are non voting members.
