Loved the intimate museum but was enthralled with the lighthouse exhibition. My 10 year old grandson loved the outdoor whale skeleton as well as the lighthouse. The woman who showed us the lighthouse lens was knowledgeable and never rushed us as we were in awe.

We enjoyed seeing all the exhibits in this museum and learning a lot about the ocean and the Pacific Northwest.

Great celebration of "All Things Salmon" at this little fishing village on the Washington coast at the entrance to Gray's Harbor. This year they built a collection of the history of the charter boats that plied the fishing waters off the coast during the post-WW2 period, some of which still chase the salmon in their annual run up the West...

We visited just to see what it was. I particularly liked the out of door exhibit of whale and dolphin skeletons. Inside was several interesting things with the light house lenses my favorite. I recommend if you can afford the $5 USD admission.

This is a cool museum! If you're from the Pacific Northwest, some of the items might seem a bit ordinary to you. But the main attraction is the really cool light structure that was recovered from the Desolation Island Lighthouse. There is only one like it, which is at the Smithsonian. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area!

This building was the Coast Guard Station years ago. The displays are good but there is room for improvement. The STAR of this place is the Fresnel Lens from Destruction Island Lighthouse. Spectacular!!

Have a little extra time go take a walk through learn a little local history. The best part of it all is the lighthouse lens in the separate building. It is great I do photography and it took me awhile to leave the building. That is worth seeing. People were friendly and knowledgeable.

l loved the full length wale skeleton and all the local history. From the pictures you can see how the area grew up from a sand dune! Westport has a wonderful long history and you can learn most of it at this one stop afternoon hang out. Westport is blessed to have it and the tourists interested in learning about... More

Great Coast Guard and Cranberry displays. The building is very unique in character and design. Be sure to come to the museum for Independence day every year, great food, games and family fun.
