I love the White River Valley Museum! Cute historical museum with a plethora of information about people who have and continue to live in the White River Valley area (Auburn, Kent, Algona, Pacific, etc.). Lots of hands-on activities for little ones, and their rotating exhibits are lovely as well. They also put on several fun events and activities throughout the year, definitely worth a visit!
Visited Saturday. Most of Auburn's and the Valley's history is presented in beautiful living displays. This brings more life to the artifacts than just being displayed using cabinets, tables or walls. The museum is small which is why I didn't give the 5th star. Worth a visit though when in Auburn.
