Welcome to the Fox Island Museum!
There are more than 3000 artifacts on display in Dioramas, Showcases, and free standing exhibits. Among them is a display describing the life of former Governor Dr. Dixy Lee Ray, a Mosquito Fleet display, Indian artifacts, rotating exhibits, a reference room, Book Nook, and Museum Store.
Book Nook Update:
Due to Covid concerns and the governor’s recent edict we have decided to discontinue our Book Nook/Gift Shop openings until further notice.
In the interim, people who want to buy gift shop items can make an appointment and we’ll do our best to accommodate them. Contact Gail Jones at 253-549-7400.
We want to thank you for your many generous donations of books. Please note that at this time we are requesting that all book donations be left only on Saturdays. Please leave books in bags or boxes on the benches outside the museum. We will be keeping these donations in quarantine outside the Book Nook for a period of time so please leave them protected from the elements. We appreciate your understanding of these necessary changes as we are all in this together. Thank you so much for your continued support.
