The DuPont Museum is a historical museum in DuPont, Washington.

The museum was opened in 1977 in the former DuPont City Hall building.[1][2] In 1982 a non-profit foundation, the DuPont Historical Society, was formed to operate the museum.[1] The museum continues to support the 8,000, and growing, citizens of DuPont and Pierce County.

The museum organizes the annual "Hudson's Bay Day" celebration commemorating the role of the Hudson's Bay Company and Fort Nisqually in local history.[3]
