  • Spectacular for adults, good for kids. This is an well presented and interesting museum that does justice to the long history of the area and amazing archaeological find. The Longhouse and Dugout boats alone are worth the (very cheap) cost of entry. Kids who are below reading age or with lesser interest in anthropology/local history will want to dash to the showy exhibits noted above, which'll be frustrating because there is a book's worth of great stuff written on the walls and exhibits.
  • Take your time here, plan out a full day. Ask for guidance to other vistas while visiting, finish at Cape Flattery.
  • Great experience, lots of enlightening information. Would defienetly recommend to anyone looking for a fun thing to do while, taking in valuable knowledge of the ancestors of the traditional land of that area.
  • Amazing displays. A very peaceful place, well designed and so informative. I can hardly wait to go back.
  • This place tells an awesome story about this tribes rediscovery of its past. Well worth the $5 admission.

Where to stay in Neah Bay

Neah Bay offers limited accommodation options in the center of town. These include some motels, a simple resort with dorm-style rooms and cabins, and the odd guesthouse. All of them try to be as close to the water as possible. Look east along the coastal road for a few more inns and waterside fishing resorts.
