Open year-round, the Wanapum Heritage Center presents, maintains and continues the Wanapum History and way of life. Visitors to the museum can view numerous displays of Wanapum historical artifacts or watch videos of the Wanapum history and the Columbia River.

The Wanapum Heritage Center repository cares for and manages the ethnographic, archaeological, historical, and archival collections of the Wanapum. This repository provides a secure, climate-controlled environment for Wanapum photographs and artifacts and for archaeological data and collections from the region.
