I was not aware of this attraction until my wife found an article about it. We visited on their 20th anniversary which provided reduced tickets for entry ($5), plus cake and punch. This is a huge collection of restored horse-drawn carriages of the past from all over the world, all walks of life and several hundred years from grand landaus for outings by the wealthy to Conestoga wagons from the Oregon Trail. Doctor's buggies, elegant hearses, grocery wagons, taxi hacks, stage coaches, road graders, horse drawn conveyances for all walks of life. The carriages have been meticulously restored and are primarily displayed indoors. Docents are available to discuss the history and use of each vehicle. Definitely worth the stop. Allow one to two hours.

The finest collection of 19th century horse drawn vehicles in the country....unbelieveable. This museum is amazing....a must see. Something for everyone here.......can't believe a world class museum is in this small town. The displays are beautiful....lots of artifacts along with the vehicles. The staff is wonderful. Great visitor information for the area. You must visit this place....well worth the time....fantastic!

I thought I knew a lot about carriages before I came here. I found out that I didn't know anything. As I found out here, there were as many different carriages in the 19th century as there are different types of automobiles now. Each different type of carriage was made for a specific task. The vast majority of the carriages in this museum have been fully restored & are in like new condition. The lady that ran the museum was very friendly and able to answer any question I had. This is one of the best museums I have ever seen! This is a must see!

An amazing array of carriages, many of which I had never seen before. The quality of the restorations is amazing, and those in the conservation category are equally fascinating. The written displays provide glimpses into history that are worth spending the time to read. Several were used as movie props and are shown in a short video display of clips from those movies. There is an interactive portion of the museum geared towards kids so don't hesitate to take them along. We spent three hours and thoroughly enjoyed every minute.

The Northwest Carriage Museum in Raymond, WA, can easily be called a world class museum. Every piece in the museum has a story to tell, and Jerry, the owner will gladly relate it. Even if you have no experience whatsoever with horse drawn vehicles, by the end of your visit you will be amazed at what you've learned. It's fascinating. Jerry and his wife, Laura, have traveled the country, finding these often neglected vehicles, and restored them to their former glory. I can't imagine the number of hours, the painstaking attention to detail, and the absolutely beautiful work they have spent on the carriages, etc. Even more amazing is that they have restored each piece to the point where they can be USED. Not that they do, but they can be used just as they were used, in some cases, 150 years ago.
I highly recommend you spend a day at the museum.

This was a marvelous experience. The museum is well maintained, the carriages, coaches, etc. have been restored to their original glory. There’s hands on experiences for kids and film clips such as “Gone with the Wind”, “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir” showcasing some of the carriages on display. Artifacts and clothing of the era on display lending to the overall experience. Its a must see museum.

The is by far the best carriage museum I've ever seen. Almost all of the carriages are restored to original and all have a story to tell. Be it from previous owners, manufacturers or props in the movies. Some of the movies are "Gone with the Wind", stagecoach from Errol Flynn and Humphrey Bogart's "Virginia City" or a carriage from Shirley Temple's "The Little Princess". This is a gem of a showcase of beautiful horse drawn buggies, wagons and stagecoaches including a couple hearses. A hands-on area is set aside for children of all ages.
