Museum Mission

The Moses Lake Museum & Art Center is dedicated to exploring the human and natural history of the Columbia Basin and celebrating the works of regional artists. We are a not-for-profit institution supported by the City of Moses Lake and museum members.


The Moses Lake Museum & Art Center is a program of the Moses Lake Parks & Recreation Department. Originally founded as the Adam East Museum in 1958, the museum is home to the Adam East Collection of Native American artifacts, local history exhibits, a fine art gallery, museum store and a giant Columbian Mammoth metal sculpture. The museum is housed in the Moses Lake Civic Center.


The Moses Lake Museum & Art Center is a proud member of the American Alliance of Museums, Washington Museum Association and American Association for State and Local History.
