A lot will be happening at the Museum and Fort Worden on Labor Day Weekend (September 5, 6 and 7) in 2015:

Our Upcoming Events page will be updated soon.

Help support Washington State Parks, purchase a Discover Pass. Passes are available at (click on the names for a Google Map) the Friends of Fort Worden Gift Shop (in their new location), the Coast Artillery Museum at Fort Worden, the Marine Science Center at Fort Worden, the Registration Desk in the Commons, and some other Fort Worden Partners for $30 without any additional charges so you save $5. Because the Partners sell the Pass at cost without any markup, some only take cash or checks. The Coast Artillery Museum, the Gift Shop and the Registration Desk in the Commons can accept credit cards.

Visit Fortworden.org for information about accommodations and events at the Fort.

Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day the Harbor Entrance Control Post will be open for tours on Saturdays from 11 AM to 3 PM, and there is a free, guided Walking Tour of Artillery Hill beginning at 1 PM on Saturdays, starting in the grassy field near Battery Randol. The walking tour covers 1-1.5 miles and can last up to 2 hours if people are interested, but you're welcome to join up or leave at any time. A flashlight is advised, but not required. Donations are always appreciated, we have a box at the HECP when it's open, and always at the Museum. Occasional extra days are scheduled, please see our Upcoming Events page for details.

The tours are also available for groups at any time by special arrangement, please call the Museum to discuss it. For those unable to walk to the top of the hill, you can check in at the Park office and present a Washington State disabled parking pass or equivalent to make arrangements to drive to the top of the hill. You will still need to be able to navigate uneven ground and some stairs to make the tour itself.

The 249th Living History Group from Oregon has a target date of the early 1940s and normally are set up as the 249th Coast Artillery based at Fort Stevens on the Columbia River. They will be at the Coast Artillery Museum again for Labor Day weekend 2015 in the role of the 248th Coast Artillery, which was based at Fort Worden. See our Upcoming Events page for more information.



For information about other events at Fort Worden, and for reservation information please see FortWorden.org.

From Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend Museum Volunteers provide guided tours of the fortifications on Saturdays. The Harbor Entrance Command Post is open from 11-3 and a Walking Tour of Artillery hill starts at 1 PM at Memory's Vault on top of the hill. Special group tours of the Museum or the hill are available on request, please call (360) 385-0373 to arrange it.
