Lacey's Resort Era
Lacey School Room
Strollers are not allowed inside the building due to limited space. We also request that you leave food and beverages in your car.
You may book your group, free of charge, to receive an in-depth tour of the Lacey Museum exhibits with a docent. It is best to schedule your tour outside of museum hours to enjoy an uninterrupted personalized experience. Groups of up to 20 people can be accommodated. Please allow 30-45 minutes for your tour plus time to self-tour if you wish.
Museum holdings include photographs, research files, archival documents and historic objects which you are invited to access to enhance your genealogical research, school work, scholarly pursuit or curiosity.
To receive the best possible service, you are strongly encouraged to make an appointment. This will ensure that materials are available and staff is available to assist you. Walk-in customers may not be able to be assisted that day. Access to and incidental retrieval of museum materials are always free, but some requests and products may incur charges.
