Old City Hall History Tours

Take a fun, informative tour with the Whatcom Museum's trained docents! They will take participants through the building and down to the basement of Old City Hall to see the historic jail rooms, including a padded cell from the days of prohibition. 

Our docents will give an overview about the architecture of the venerable building, as well as the history of the early days of Bellingham. Participants will learn fun facts, quirky trivia, and unique stories about some of the characters who worked in and visited the building. 

Tours last one hour and begin on the first-floor lobby of Old City Hall. Included with admission/Members Free

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
