Will be great when they get their new building. Lot's of interesting stuff in a small space. Lot's of history of the North Coast. I always find an interesting book there.

Great little place to visit while on the North Beach. Bring your beach finds to Kelly the curator and he can give you a complete history on it.

If you are interested in the history of the North Beach you need to make your way to this little cluster of hidden knowledge tucked away in Moclips! Really, it will amaze you. I also noticed that they recieved the June 2015 Business of the Month award from the chamber of commerce for their great community service. A must see... More

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!
