This is apparently the largest collection of hammers in the world. As I wandered in the collection, I came across an item by a relative of my late wife. He had invented an improved version of the reflex hammer - the thing that doctors use to hit your knee and test your reflexes. I contacted his daughter, and she hadn't known of this invention of his.

While on our Cruise, Haines was a stop. While the girls in our group wandered a few of the shops, the guys went to the Hammer Museum. Honestly, they could not stop talking about it. There are hammers of every size and shape. You can spend as much or as little time as you want to look at hammers. The guys loved it!

This was a really unique place to visit. It only takes about an hour or less, but they have rooms full of different hammers. Found this to be a fun stop.

Ok as cheesy as it sounds, this place is incredibly interesting. I was sad we only had about 25 minutes to wander around. I could have spent a couple hours in there looking at and reading about the hammers. It doesn't take much walking and it is worth a visit.

No, I am not talking about the local brewery, but I did visit the Hammer Museum. What an incredible place with almost 2000 hammers on display. Hammers that you have never seen before or could even think of creating yourself. I am a huge tool fan and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Even my wife had a great time walking around the museum. It is well worth stopping in.
