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.

A small store front - opens into a heck of a museum. A was totally surprised to find three floors of museum quality artifacts. On the first floor has a number of exhibits regarding the history of the Lynden area - including logging, military, some Dutch history in the area. Going to the basement a large amount of wagons -...

I was very surprised how big the museum is. I did not expect that. Very interesting and I really enjoyed the time there. Well worth to visit.

I have lived in Bellingham and driven past this location for that last seven years but never gone in. My mother was in town and wanted to see “the Dutch town.” I tried to dissuade her. Lynden is nice, but not a destination in and of itself. We go there for the Million Smiles playground and the fair... We walked... More

This is one of the best small town museums that we have been to. Inside you can stroll a simulation of the main street of town during the early 20th century. There are antique/classic cars, antique carriages, war memorabilia and much more. The building itself is somewhat historic with an old bank vault in the lobby.

When viewing the museum from the street, it didn't look like much. But my firends have been there before, there were so many things to see inside. Good documentation of the history of the area. Enjoyed the car collection downstairs. Also like seeing the miniature circus upstairs.

This is a great museum. I learned a lot about Whatcom County, and I grew up here! They have lots of antiques and interesting information on the history of the area.
