  • For Haines, you cannot skip this small museum, if only for the enormous wooden hammer placed davani at the entrance. The $5 entrance fee are well-spent to see a huge variety of hammers. Some strange customs such as to cancel out the checks or those for numbering the casks.

  • We LOVE the HAMMER MUSEUM!! These folks are so hospitable and the hammers on display are so unique! Who would have known that a museum of HAMMERS was so awesome!?!?!? Be sure to stop in each week to find out which one Sofia chooses as HAMMER OF THE WEEK!!! (ALSO: our mascot Salmon Ella got some great smooches from these folks. Truly, this is a site worth your while!!!!!)

Where to stay in Haines

Haines supports a few hotels and motels, most of which sit near the waterfront. Bed and breakfasts are more plentiful in the area, and many boast superb views and provide a real taste of Alaska. Renting a more rural cabin or staying at a campsite or RV park is a good way to take advantage of Haines' beautiful natural surroundings.
