  • An interesting museum with much to see! The guide was extremely helpful and answering questions and was friendly towards children. Many unique artifacts are in this museum.
  • A little taste of island history. Unique collection of native and Islanders lifestyles
  • This tiny museum holds more artifacts than many larger ones. Very nice host who grew up on Washington Island knew many interesting stories about island history.

  • Fun place
