Beautiful lighthouse lens

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.

The main buildings are only open limited hours which did not allow for us to go inside. There are some large buildings of glass outside that have nice displays of whale bones, dolphin bones, scale models. We enjoyed walking though those even though we could not get into the museum Would return to see the rest.

This museum is very interesting and a great way to spend a gray afternoon in Westport. The history of Westport and the maritime industry in Washington is very interesting. Make sure you go to the building next door to see the authentic light house lantern. Check out the gift shop while you are there. The gift shop has a lot... More

Very cool whale bones! Great history of westport. Take the time to read the journals. It's really amazing to see original artifacts. Only $5 per adult. Kids under 5 are free. There is a cute kids room upstairs that has a sand box that kids can play with. Our 3 year old liked that room but didn't care for Mose... More

I love lighthouses, and have stopped at almost all on the Pacific Coast. When we visited the museum, we were captivated by the Japanese flotsam that washed over after the Honshu Provence earthquake and tsunami. However, the 1st Order Fresnel Lens displayed is absolutely breathtaking. The lens was saved from the decommissioned Deconstruction Island lighthouse and is on display in... More

They have some interesting finds. I would be curious to find out if the place is haunted actually. They have a burial urn from Japan that washed up and tons of neat finds from wrecked ships. The upstairs area is a bit out of place I felt because it was old farm equipment and tools. But the best part is... More

If these artifacts were in a bigger city, they would have many more visitors. Old time pictures. Old time stories.

The museum itself was pretty interesting but the highlight and must see is the giant lens in the next building. It's fascinating and beautiful.
