The Lynden Pioneer Museum shares the rich history of Whatcom County and the Pacific Northwest. Stories ranging from settlement to depression, through conflict and compromise illustrate the indomitable will of the pioneers who settled the fourth corner.


54 horse drawn vehicles, 28,000 square feet on 3 floors, a life-size farmstead with barnyard, 22 historic shop fronts, 37,000 objects displayed, 4 tractors, a threshing machine, 8 antique cars, a 20 foot dugout canoe and a 150 year old pickle!

And this year you can view our temporary exhibition, Echoes from the Trenches: Whatcom County and the Great War
