Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture
For over 100 years now, the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture has served as the largest cultural organization in the Inland Northwest. As a Smithsonian affiliate, this museum sees more than 100,000 visitors every year.
It’s worth your time to pop an edible and stop by. From March 2022 to September 1st, 2022, the museum is loaded with artifacts from an incredible exhibition: “DREAMWORKS ANIMATION: THE EXHIBITION—JOURNEY FROM SKETCH TO SCREEN” which celebrates over 25 years of DreamWorks animation. Like Shrek? Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda? You’ll like this exhibition.
It’s not the only thing worth checking out, though. This museum always has something interesting, regardless of the time of year. You can also catch an exhibition that dives into Eastern Washington’s early wheat industry, or the collaboration with the United Tribes of the Upper Columbia, which delves into the annual Columbia River Canoe Journey with contemporary and historic canoes as well as the stories from people involved. Any history nerd would be excited to spend hours soaking up the information at this iconic museum.
If you feel like learning, seeing, and immersing yourself in new worlds, stop by the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture.
