From humble beginnings in 1911, MOHAI has grown into the largest private heritage organization in the State of Washington with a collection of over four million objects, documents, and photographs from the Puget Sound region's past (including these amazing images from the MOHAI/Seattle Post-Intelligencer collection). A portion of this collection (roughly 2% at any given time) is on display in the museum's galleries at the historic Naval Reserve Armory in Lake Union Park.
MOHAI uses these artifacts, along with cutting edge, hands-on interactive experiences to make history come alive through the unforgettable stories of the men and women who built Seattle from wilderness to world city.
In addition to museum exhibits, MOHAI hosts a variety of award-winning youth and public programs and consistently collaborates with community partners, like the Garfield High School Centennial Celebration Committee, on local activities and events.
