  • As a kid I went to this museum in the 50's. Went again with my kids and with grandkids. I am not sure which time I was most thrilled. Worth the trip.  more »

  • We certainly don't visit this local icon often enough, but when we do I am always pleasantly surprised by the friendly, informative & quirky docents. They make the experience just a bit more memorable. This last visit we were treated to excellent views out of the upper turret overlooking Bham bay while bright god beams skittered over the water under a brooding sky, sorry I didn't get photos ;{)
  • Awesome Christmas trees right now, but learned a lot about the history of the area! Great info!
  • It's a fun Museum especially to take the family to
  • Always enjoy stopping by to see their exhibitions. Its always changing and the fee is usually donation based. Parking is next to the building. Entrance is on the street.
  • Bellingham is fortunate to have this museum. The gift shop is great too.
