I liked that it was 4.00 for seniors. It had a lot of everything - horsedrawn carriages, war memorabilia, farming equipment, a mock setup of what Lynden used to look like in the early 1900s, and a real variety of collectibles. It was 3 stories and very interesting.

As others have noted, this museum will surprise you once you've entered. There is so much to see and such a wide variety. Yes, it's possible that it can be organized better. But we were amazed every time we went around another corner or up another floor. If you bring your kids, be prepared to explain what many of the... More

Lynden Pioneer Museum is a real hidden gem. It has a great display of life-size rural house, complete with interiors, and life size 'Lynden Main street' with various businesses, all of the latter stocked with their tools of trade. It looks like a town under a roof. Lower floor houses a collection of horse-drawn carriages. For those not very familiar... More

Spend a few hours at this museum and you will be treated to an interesting and informative history of Lynden and the surrounding area. Many of the exhibits are replicas of historical shops and businesses. Also an interesting collection of horse drawn buggys and carriages.

This museum contains a wide range of items collected by people in the area. Many items are from the first settlers of the area and include farming, logging, and old merchandise. The museum is a bit of a hodgepodge, but there are many unique items. The upper floor has a farming and logging section and a small "town" with antique... More

This was my second trip to the Pioneer Museum. The collection and area are vast...much more than one would expect. There are several different areas from the beginnings of the the town/area, displays of pioneer homesteads, memorabilia from the World Wars, Korea and Vietnam, collection of wagons and carriages and a replica of the town. Yes, there there is not... More

We expected to learn about the history of Lynden, but it was a hodge podge museum about everything, but nothing in particular. There was so much stuff and it was not in any order that made sense. It was not cohessive.It was like an estate sale. It was dirty and there were dead flies in the window sills. The workers... More

lots to see, and for visitors of a 'certain age', it brought back lots of memories of times gone by. the staff is quite knowledgeable as well and could answer questions. they also have quite a nice gift shop.

Great gift shop with unique items. Lots of great displays of old cars, dairy and farm history, and information local to Washington. The old-time mainstreet and the miniature displays were great for the kids.
