Access for All: Free First Fridays at the Whatcom Museum

March 1 @ 10:00 am - 9:00 pm

- Free

In March, we’re taking a step back in time and exploring Bellingham’s history. (Wait, wait! This will be fun, we promise!) Did you know that the basement of Old City Hall used to be the local jail? (And did you know you can still read names and words carved into the cell walls?) Well, now’s your chance to see for yourself. Join us for tours, talks, an archival photo booth, and our special art guest, Paws with Cause. And speaking of animals, be sure to tour The Pet Show photography exhibit of Whatcom County pets through the years before it closes next month. Don’t forget to upload a photo of your favorite pet for our community gallery, too!

The Whatcom Museum acknowledges that we gather on the traditional territory of the Lhaq’temish – Lummi People – and the Nuxwsá7aq – Nooksack People – who have lived in the Coast Salish region from time immemorial. The Museum honors our relationship with all of our Coast Salish neighbors and our shared responsibilities to their homeland where we all reside today.
