Help support Washington State Parks, purchase a Discover Pass. Passes are available at the Fort Worden Park Office, the Coast Artillery Museum at Fort Worden, the Marine Science Center at Fort Worden and some other Fort Worden Partners for $30 without any additional charges. Because the Partners sell the Pass without any markup, many only take cash or checks. The Park Office can accept credit cards.

The Coast Artillery Museum participated in the Washington State Parks First Day Hikes program. State Parks sponsors guided walks in numerous Parks around the State on New years Day. At Fort Worden CAM led guided tours of the gun batteries and Harbor Entrance Control Post on top of Artillery Hill. Over 100 people showed up for the tour, many of whom had never been to Fort Worden before.

At the Coast Artillery Museum we're on our non-summer schedule, 11AM to 4PM 7 days a week.

Next summer we'll again be opening the Harbor Entrance Control Post for tours on Saturdays from 11AM to 3PM, and provide a free, guided Walking Tour of Artillery Hill beginning at 1PM 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.

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.
Military Vehicle Show, 2014
The Coast Artillery Museum plans to host the Military Vehicle Show again in 2014, and the date has changed back to Labor Day weekend, August 29-September 1, 2014.

As always, vehicles will be parked in the field behind the main gun line at the top of the hill and probably open for viewing Friday through Monday from 10 AM to 4 PM. Rides up and down the hill will be provided in old military vehicles, we'll be doing tours of some areas and we've started to line up re-enactors and displays to be down by the museum. We'll firm up the details as we get closer.

For more information please see our Upcoming Events page.
