  • If you've ever held a hammer or been curious about hand tools, this is the place to go. The most amazing collection of hammers and hammer like tools you'll ever see. I had no idea how cool a hammer museum could be. They even have some nobody knows what there're for, maybe you do.
  • More than you ever thought you could want to know about hammers, and way more fun than you thought a hammer museum could be.
  • Once you get in there you want to take a hammer off the wall and make it your final resting place. Pure tourist trap.
  • We really enjoyed our visit to Haines and especially the Hammer Museum, it was so interesting that we took about fifty pictures to take home with us. Thank you for the visit. Tanya & John Widmark Granisle, BC Canada
  • One of the most fun things in Haines!
