“Lots to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

When viewing the museum from the street, it didn't look like much. But my firends have been there before, there were so many things to see inside. Good documentation of the history of the area. Enjoyed the car collection downstairs. Also like seeing the miniature circus upstairs.

“Historic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

This is a great museum. I learned a lot about Whatcom County, and I grew up here! They have lots of antiques and interesting information on the history of the area.

“Well done for a small-town museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

As others have noted, this place is impressive given what they have to work with. It's almost entirely volunteer-run (may be entirely so) and has a limited budget to work with, yet it is packed with history and well-cared-for displays, right down to a full-blown recreation of main street. If I had any criticism it would be that there is just too much stuff for the small space. It felt a little crammed in at times. Definitely worth a visit.

“Great museum for a small town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

The museum is great for out of town guests. Keep in mind this will not be the Smithsonian. It is a SMALL TOWN museum! So much to see packed into this place. Always a great way to relive my childhood, I don't think much has changed since my first visit in the 90s! Fabulous quality for a small town!

“Fabulous find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012 via mobile

Great find. Who knew such a small town museum could hold so much interesting history. Allow more time than you would for a typical small museum. You won't want to miss anything!
