Interesting for anyone who would like to see an improvement in the way we care for our natural surroundings. Lots of pretty pictures and a great display of things that have been pulled out of the waters on the sound.

We wondered into this fascinating museum and really enjoyed the interpretive narrative by the volunteer. The displays were kid friendly, easy to read and very, very interesting. Well worth the stop to get a better sense of our pacific coast.
