Museum of History & Industry MOHAI – Virtual Tour

The Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) is a history museum with a collection of nearly 4 million artifacts, photographs, and archival materials that primarily focus on Seattle and the greater Puget Sound region.

A portion of this collection is exhibited in the museum’s galleries at the historic Naval Reserve Armory in Lake Union Park. 

The museum traces its roots to the establishment of the Seattle Historical Society in 1914. In 2012, the museum held the public opening for its new home in South Lake Union.

The MOHAI collection has about 100,000 three dimensional artifacts, over 3 million photographs, and around 200,000 archival holdings. 

The artifacts collection encompasses a range of items such as textiles, fine art, decorative arts, household objects, maritime equipment, early computers, vehicles, and more.
