Event Details

Historic Fort Steilacoom in Lakewood reopen for tours this summer

Come see us! Historic Fort Steilacoom in Lakewood will be open at least one weekend a month this summer so visitors can walk through and tour four buildings that witnessed key events in the early U.S. settlement of Washington Territory. Fort Steilacoom is a history museum where guests of all ages can explore the military life of enlisted soldiers, officers, the families of soldiers, civilians that worked for the garrison and those that visited from the community.

The three cottages and interpretive center that remain from the original complex will be open for tours from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 12, Oct. 3 and Nov. 7, 2021.

There are some changes because of the pandemic. The museum will have more volunteers and tour guides than usual to keep groups small, and visitors will be required to register in advance so the museum can keep capacity at safe levels. People can sign up and pre-pay for tours at
