Nice little museum with lots of interesting artifacts, photos and history. Funded by donations. Worth 30 minutes of your time.

My husband and I wandered in to the museum while we were exploring the little town of Eastsound. The entry fee is a donation of your choosing. The exhibits offered a good review of the island's history with lots of interesting little artifacts to peruse. The story of the large family (nine children in a one-room cabin) who were early settlers on Orcas was quite compelling. Visitors with children would have enjoyed the "photobooth" area where you can take pictures with authentic early settler clothing. All in all a good stop on a quiet island.

Even though this is a relatively small museum, it is extremely packed full of information about the history, people, and living conditions on orchis Island in the 1800s later. There are six log cabins join together to create the larger structure. Admission is free with a suggested donation, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. There is lots to read, and the items are up close and personal. It doesn’t take long to Peru’s, but you could spend longer if you got engrossed with all of the information. We were surprisingly.intrigued. There are some fun things for the kids as well, including a dress up area. Seems like a hidden gem.
