Museum exhibits at The REACH celebrate the natural, scientific and cultural history of the Tri-Cities area. Come visit us today and explore Eastern Washington like never before.

Our exhibits span over 14,000 square feet and well over that many years of history. Visitors of all ages can live the stories of our region’s natural history and culture through our gallery exhibits. While our educational programs are designed to inform and engage students of all ages on themes of technology, history, science, math and more. A trip to The REACH is a great way to enhance the learning experience as our demonstrations correlate with grade level education subjects and standards.
