This review is limited to the Lightcatcher, the modern building that houses the Whatcom Museum's gallery of art.
Though the building looks big enough from the outside, much of the inside is given over to a courtyard, cafe (Kackink!), the obligatory museum shop (Kachink!), and high ceilings. That leaves little space for actual exhibits - essentially two rooms and some hallways. Admission to this scant offering, no photos allowed, is $10!
If you want to reassure yourself that you are not really missing anything, occasionally, on Art Walk nights, admission is free. But you can never be sure on *which* Art Walk night, nor when even one of those nights gets preempted by a "private event."
