We thoroughly enjoyed this gem of a museum in the Pacific Northwest. The volunteers were knowledgeable and helpful, and even though the space is small, we left with a wealth of information. Well-done!

Nice quaint museum with a lot of area history, you use to be able to take the train there from Seattle it only took 2 days. There is a glass blowing shop there also and plenty of quality souvenirs.

This small museum has a rich history of the North Beaches of Washington State. Nestled just north of Pacific Beach heading into Moclips, you will find a variety of items from long ago until the recent Japanese Tsunami. Worth the stop.

Excellent and intimate museum. The curator was extremely knowledgeable. Because it is small, you have all of their attention and it feels like an exclusive tour.

This is a great little museum, full of flotsam and jetsam gleaned from the beautiful area beaches as well as some local logging and railroad treasures. Admission is free (donations appreciated) and the volunteers are a wealth of knowledge about all things local. A great way to spend a rainy afternoon!

This is a nice place to spend some time looking at the history of the area. Enjoyed talking to man that was there. Did not get his name.

Small museum jam-packed with local treasures. Very interesting. So much to look at that we couldn't do it justice. We got a good sense of the history of the area, though.

Try to find a time when either Kelly or Lee are there. They are real historians of the North Beach. Something new is on display with every visit.
