The Renton History Museum is actively conducting and collecting oral interviews with people who have shaped Renton's history. Recent interviewees have included Vietnam veterans, founders of Renton's women's organizations, retired City officials, teachers, and musicians. We are recording these oral histories to help inform future generations about what it is like and has been like to live and work in Renton.
You can join the team as an interviewer, researcher, or transcriber--training is provided. Learn how to conduct oral histories, research topics behind the interviews, and transcribe and archive the completed recording. Build your skills in interpersonal contact, research, and listening. It's a fun way to learn and to help preserve Renton stories for future generations.

The Renton History Museum is a community center for sharing and celebrating the unique history of Renton. As a small museum with limited financial and staff resources, we rely on the service of our dedicated volunteer corps to continue offering quality exhibits and programs to the public.
