This poor little museum is a disappointment. It is dusty and dark. I guess this is all Sequim can manage. Too bad. Friendly docent, though.

Beautiful old, original schoolhouse with a small museum inside. A terrific photo opportunity that is close to the Sequim Animal Park and Nash's Organic Store.

Sequim is a small town with lots o local history. Local people volunteer their time working there so you get accurate info on the local history of Sequim and the surrounding areas. Sequim is a little bit of heaven with a sixteen inch rainfall per year. We are in the rain shadow here and close to the Olympic mountains...A great... More

WOW! there is a full size racing shell and a fabulous poster show about Boys in the Boat, Joe Rantz that the museum did themselves! I got to meet the daughter of Joe Rantz!!!! Amazing!!! The art exhibit was fabulous, really some excellent paintings of animals and boats. Will definitely be visiting the next time we are in Sequim.

I went to the First Friday and it was like a new museum- people were having fun, there was live music, and a book signing. Someone said that the guy who was the former director had tried everything to close the place down but I am glad for the town he didn't succeed. The art exhibit was Fiber Arts Festival,... More

We liked this shop/gallery. I was tempted by many things and bought a copper bracelet with traditional designs and a salmon teatowel. That sounds like a typical tourist experience but it felt authentic and they had really beautiful copper sculptures - i especially liked the salmon copper ones. Next time we are in the area, we will stop again.

The photo shown is the Dungeness Schoolhouse, which is the property of the Museum and Art Center. The actual museum is located at 175 W. Cedar Street in the town of Sequim. It is a wonderful small town museum that is currently in the state of transition.

I don't think it is the right photo. I went to this place and it was in the business district in a small space. Half art show and half history museum. Much smaller than it used to be. It's only OK. Has some information about the area, but not much

We went there several years ago, and then just took visitors, but it has really gone downhill. They are now charging $400 for artists to exhibit art, instead of supporting the art community. The history exhibits are not well labeled. . What happened to the lovely musuem that was there a few years back with great art, and well done... More
