Renton History Museum set to reopen this month

Capacity will be limited, calling for reservations is encouraged.

The Renton History Museum on 235 Mill Ave. S. is set to reopen this month after pandemic pressures forced them to close their doors to the public.

During March the museum will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Friday to limited capacity. The wearing of face coverings will be required as will social distancing. Museum staff will clean frequently, according to a City of Renton Facebook post.

Capacity is limited to 25 percent, or about 15 people at a time, so calling 425-255-2330 or emailing for reservations is suggested.

In honor of Women’s History Month, their featured exhibit is “What Difference Do Renton Women Make?” The exhibit explores the lives and contributions of Renton women in helping make Renton the city it is today, according to the post.
