The Center is a place of learning and a source of civic pride for the Tulalip people and our neighboring communities. We hope that our visitors will be fascinated by our exhibits and learn about our remarkable history and culture.
Whether you choose a self-guided or group tour, you will have the opportunity to experience the journey of the Tulalip people. You will learn about our traditional territories, the importance of the cedar trees, our seven value stories and seasonal lifeways. As you walk through the Canoe Hall you will experience our homelands from the mountains to Tulalip Bay. Featured in the Canoe Hall are historic canoes and archaeology from various sites throughout Snohomish County. Our first featured exhibition in our changing gallery is Warriors: We Remember. The Tulalip Tribes military tradition was born of a warrior spirit that protected our families and territories. In time of war they risked everything and many gave their lives to fulfill their role of protecting the people. For the past hundred years, the same warrior spirit compelled our men and women to enlist in the United States Armed Forces. Our veterans served in times of conflict and in times of peace so that we may live with an enduring sense of freedom. We honor their sacrifices with this exhibition.
Among the many amenities of the Cultural Center, we have 50 acres of forests and wetlands, a research library, collections facility that is a CFR part 79 certified archaeological repository, education programs and more. Come and enjoy our heritage and culture!
