The Museum of History & Industry’s (MOHAI) permanent exhibit, True Northwest: The Seattle Journey, traverses through the real Seattle story: from an age when Native American cultures first came into contact with Europeans to the region’s transformation into a major global hub.

Find out how the city rebuilt after a devastating fire, made a fortune in a legendary gold rush, reshaped its natural setting, boomed during two World Wars and two World’s Fairs, and challenged the status quo in the 20th century.
