Fort Nisqually Living History Museum
A museum is history, and the Fort Nisqually Living History Museum is a compelling combination of heritage life, historic record, and living history. Visitors can engage in historic dialogue with a variety of interpretive staff and volunteers in period clothing and an historic environment, with actors that are recreating life at a 19th century fur-trade post in the Pacific Northwest. This was the first European settlement in the region now known as Puget Sound, and was owned and operated by the Hudson?s Bay Company. The site is part of the larger regional park that encompasses most of scenic Point Defiance, and consists of many reconstructed buildings that were built from original foundations and plans. Visit at any time of year to see authentic, historic craftsmanship, skills demonstrations, and other interactive activities. The fort also hosts several special events that are relevant to the period and fun for everyone, like Queen Victoria?s Birthday and a 19th Century Christmas.
