Very cute little museum. It has a lot of coast guard history with nice decorative history items. The old light from the light house is amazing! Well worth a stop

The museum was closed but, I enjoyed the outside glass display and the whale skeleton inside it. Other neat stuff in there too. The building that the museum is in is awesome looking.

The free exhibit case outside is more interesting than the stuff inside. Save your cash unless you feel the need to donate to the community.

It was a quiet time at the museum and some displays were being renewed, but it was still very enjoyable. There is a lot of detail in the displays to let you get the feel of the time being described.

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
