The main reason to stop IMO is the great lighthouse lamp in the second building. Very worth the effort as you can get up close and really check it out. The rest of the museum is good as well.

Take the time to visit every single room inside this historical building. There is an admission charge but if you pay to enter the Grays Harbor Lighthouse ($5) you can save $1 for admittance here. Every room has something different with heaps of artifacts and...More

This small museum is full of interesting maritime artifacts from the Westport area. The highlight is a stunning Fresnel lense from the old Destruction Island lighthouse. It has a whole building devoted to it and its history. There are also whale skeletons in a glass...More

Visited the museum in February. The fresnel viewing lens was the best exhibit for me since we toured here after it's sister site: the lighthouse. The other exhibits around the naval officers, whales and ship equipment were pretty cool as well. Protip: save your ticket...More

The Fresnel lens, alone, is more than worth the $5 entry fee. It's definitely a must see! It is one of the most impressive museum displays I have ever seen. The Westport Historical Society should be commended for their handling of such a huge undertaking....More

Housed in a historic Coast Guard station, the museum exhibits highlight the local area. The whale bones outside are impressive. I loved being able to see the lighthouse lens from Destruction Island without having to climb to the top of a lighthouse. The docent turned...More

was the beautiful and amazing Fresnel lens. I looked at it from as many angles as I could and every angle was unique. The outdoor exhibits were interesting, the indoor not so much.

This museum houses a huge display outside of a whale bone. Also they have the very first lighthouse lense you can see up close. Very interesting.
