Lane County History Museum recognizes the history of injustice against the diverse peoples of our community by the perpetuation of racist ideologies and by omission from the activities and collections of our organization.
As stewards of history-related collections, we must work to be inclusive and equitable in all aspects of our organization, or otherwise we will be complicit in systemic prejudice. Lane County History Museum is committed to uncovering local history that confronts internal biases and includes what is absent in order to expand our understanding of Lane County’s past.
For more information on our diversity, equity, accessibility and inclusion goals and the actions planned to meet those goals, read our action plan below.

The Museum Building and Exhibits are Open!
Museum staff are safely working to continue our commitment to collect, preserve, research, publish and exhibit Our Stories. As things continue to change for our community, we are making Museum resources available to you in new ways that will serve you now, and into the future.
Lane County History Museum is funded with money from County tourism. Along with local tourist and hospitality businesses, the museum has been hit by the break in public commerce. We are working hard to stay operational and have committed to continue public operations. More information is available in our newsletters—become a member or join our mailing list to be sure you get your copy! And please donate, ask your friends and family to become members. We are eager to continue serving our community.
