  • We live in a smaller community in Grays Harbor. I have taken my children here to experience Museums, other cultures, and what life is like in a bigger city. We look forward to more trips. We came to the exhibit on August 13, 2016, and the 11 year old had a blast. Not to mention the third Thursday from 2-8 is free admission.
  • Its sort of a native American museum above anything else. Lots of Washington state History but mostly Indian related things. Kinda pricey but still impressive nonetheless
  • This was a great stop on my trip to Seattle. It was very cool to see the history of such a great state!
  • Great experience, I love to visit museums when I am traveling, gives me an idea of the people in the area, and helps me understand the societal experience, This museum gives you the idea of the hard work and determination needed to make Washington State what it is. It includes original Indians to the importance railroad and coal.
  • Great place to learn about how amazing washington state is.
