  • Having grown up in a lumber town, it was fun to see the vintage tools and photos. Lumberjack clothing and camp life was on display too. It's easy to find the museum it's right next door to the chamber...  more »

  • It's a neat little place to stop and the people that work there are very friendly. There's a nice trail behind the museum that goes through the woods. If you happen to be driving through Forks it's a good place to stretch your legs a bit.
  • Interesting look at the history behind this charming small town. You get to experience two floors of nothing but wood. All the different types of it, the different types of trees and the different types of chainsaws used to cut them down. A little bit of the lifestyle of an average lumberjack can be seen here, as well.
  • Inexpensive with lots to see. We spent a pleasant hour looking through the various items. There is also a memorial to fallen loggers and a Forks visitor center on site. Be sure to check out all three.
  • They have really interesting exhibits. Lots of pictures, not really an interactive exhibits. It might not be the best place to bring kids because a lot of the stuff is very hazardous and is not good for touching. Trails out back. I really enjoyed the viewing Tower.
  • Tells and shows the local logging history. Great trails. mostly short ones the whole family can enjoy. Definitely prettier in the summer
