“Nice small museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

We went to Forks in mid-October 2013. ecause of the government shut down, all Federal park options were closed. The Forks Timber Museum is small, the exhibits minimal. The highlights were a dugout canoe and photos of early logging attempts. The staff was friendly and helpful. The cost was minimal therefore worth the visit.

The people here were very nice and there was so much stuff here to see and it was extremely informative on the Logging and what the town of Forks has had to go through. Awesome Museum.

Interesting info about the Pacific Northwest logging and the size of the logs. The also explained how they are replacing the trees of the future.

“Nice little museum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

This is a cute little museum. It does cost $3 to get in, I had no problem with that, I like to support small towns. Nice displays. Very interesting to someone who knew nothing about the logging industry. Just takes a few minutes to go through the entire museum, but worth it.
