MOHAI believes that the preservation and exploration of Seattle’s past is essential to making effective decisions for its future. From humble beginnings in 1911, MOHAI has grown into the largest private heritage organization in the State of Washington with a collection of over 4 million objects, documents, and photographs from the Puget Sound region’s past. MOHAI uses these artifacts along with cutting edge, hands-on interactive experiences to make history come alive through the unforgettable stories of the men and women who built Seattle from wilderness to world city. MOHAI hopes to connect individuals with our region’s rich history and inspire them to help continue to make our home a strong, vibrant, and sustainable place to live for all.

"In January 2020, MOHAI completed the development of our Racial Equity statement and three-year workplan based on a year of staff and board racial equity training. The Racial Equity Statement and Goals were collaboratively created, along with a more in-depth workplan, over several months and reflect the cumulative work of every department."
