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.

This was our first visit to the museum. For $5 you can take a self-guided tour of the facility, it is pretty neat. There are so many things to see that I can't imagine just one visit would allow a person to soak in all the information. There is even a coloring and fun room for kids. I would say... More

The museum its self is the old Coast Guard Station, so that's great to see. They've kept the original closets & use for displays. Great for families! Great info & love the gift shop with unique stuff. Also a kids education room with coloring & other interesting stuff. The old lighthouse lens (light) is in a separate building - it's... More

Very nice museum. The lighthouse lens was spectacular. Like the most beautiful chandelier I've ever seen. Make sure and ask them to turn the light on.

Interesting information about the Westport fishing industry. Also an interesting display about the large cranberry industry in this area. In a separate building was housed an historic lighthouse light from a since abandoned lighthouse. It is the old original hand-made glass lite - beautiful and interesting.
