  • What a great little museum and lovely staff! The prison was such a surprise and so interesting! Liked the contemporary exhibition too.
  • My husband and I absolutely loved this place! The guy who worked at the front desk was super helpful and was extremly informational in the history of the area. Military friendly.
  • This a great museum. There's a jail in the basement you can go check out.
  • Nicely restored. Fun to see the women's jail, the hearse in the old Fire Hall and the wonderful collection of photographs of the old seaport. The museum offers a walking tour of Port Townsend that's entertaining and worthwhile.
  • A truly historic and architecturally preserved museum. Summers in this scenic town invites one to stay outdoors, however, I truly encourage one to view this impeccable museum.
