Welcome to the Key Peninsula Historical Society & Museum
The museum is open twice a week, and also by appointment. Regular hours are 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday and Saturday afternoons.
The Key Peninsula Historical Society (KPHS) is dedicated to the preservation of our local history. We hold meetings, organize events, publish newsletters, digitize documents and photos, and staff our local museum.
Our mission is to gather, record, preserve and disseminate information on the history of the Pierce County area generally known as the “Key Peninsula,” so that succeeding generations of residents will have a firm and accurate record from early exploration and settlement to the present.
Entrance intoour museum is free although donations are welcomed (Note: The museum is closed from December through January while we prepare a new exhibit). If you are visiting from afar, please explore our past museum exhibits in our archives. Check out the museum online store to see our collection of books, mugs, t-shirts, maps and family tree charts for sale, or stop by our Facebook page to see what’s going on at the museum.
