Vashon Maury Island Heritage Association and Museum

The mission of the Association is to collect, preserve, interpret, and exhibit materials reflecting the history and culture of Vashon-Maury Island and to serve as a resource for the community and region through educational programs, the collection of documents and data, and the operation of the Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Museum. The building in which the museum is housed was originally a Lutheran Church built in 1907 and subsequently used as the home for Vashon Allied Arts and the Vashon Children's Centre; today, it contains a permanent exhibit, periodic special exhibits, a History Resource Room, and an extensive archive of island photographs and other materials.

The museum offers research library access and exhibits.
