There was a lot in see in this small museum. The admission was only $3. Forks is a small town and I think they did a nice job with their collection. It's worth the stop.

We stopped in near the end of the day. They have several very interesting objects that do a nice job of recounting the early days of logging. What was even more welcome was the personal attention we received from the attendants, who were most helpful...More
