The docent was helpful, but left us alone to explore the galleries. They have lots of photographs of Trinidad, going way back. We enjoyed the Yurok basket display!

This small museum is perfect in every way. There is no better, precise collection of Native artifacts in the region. There is also a revolving exhibit of local history Including logging, whaling, and fishing.
