  • With new exhibits every couple of months there's always something new to see here. The sections on historic Whatcom County (photographs, paintings, etc.) are particularly great for those interested in local history.

Pro-tip: your public library membership gets you free entrance to the museum once every 2 months for up to 6 people.
  • Bellingham is fortunate to have this museum. The gift shop is great too.

  • The building is a classic Victorian palace. Shows vary, so what you see may or may not interest you, but the venue is interesting anyway...
