An amazing place! Who knew there were so many hammers in the world? Every job requires at least one specific hammer to do the job right. This collection is very entertaining.
This is a fun little museum and for five dollars per person entry fee the price cannot be beat! The staff was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable and it was a lot of fun taking some time wandering around and looking at all of the different hammers. Some of them even had unique stories that made the tour more interesting. If you are in Haines I would definitely recommend this as a spot to go!
who would have known there were so many hammers. The staff is super nice and knowledgeable.

Fun place to visit in Haines. Only $5 admission. Don't miss the things outside in the yard!
