Looking for a way to serve your community? The Renton History Museum's Board of Trustees is a dynamic group interested in connecting community members through a shared understanding of history. Trustees need not be Renton residents, just enthusiastic about helping a local museum succeed! The Board is the fundraising, public relations, policymaking, and oversight body for the Museum. Trustees serve three-year terms and have the opportunity for leadership and learning in the areas of fundraising, museum management, marketing, outreach, public speaking, and community engagement. The Board seeks to be an inclusive and welcoming group, representative of one of the state's most ethnically and racially diverse cities. We are currently in search of candidates with a legal, education, or business background, but all are welcome!
The mission of the Renton History Museum (RHM) is to preserve, document, interpret, and educate about the history of greater Renton in ways that are accessible to diverse people of all ages.
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. We are currently closed and staff are teleworking until museums are able to reopen in Phase 3 of the Governor's reopening plan.
