“A place as old as it's holdings”

Skagit County Historical Museum
Ranked #6 of 25 things to do in La Conner
Attraction details
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The museum and how it is set up feels pretty dated. Which was OK as that lent charm to the extremely dated displays. Beautiful view off the back of the museum. Spooky doll display. I liked it and felt that my $5/person fee was worth it.

On a rainy day, this was a great place to spend time and learn about the history of the Skagit Valley. The displays are well organized and provide a fascinating glimpse into the past in this charming town. The displays could benefit by more emphasis on the role of the indigenous peoples in the history of the area.

The Museum was nicely decorated for Christmas. There were lots of interesting items and displays to view, with a good cross-section of period correct historical pieces.

The only drawback was some items lacked any information on what they were used for or even what their name was.

Well worth the $4 fee. Lots of interesting artifacts on life around 1900 and they have several fake rooms set up from the period - my favorites were the kitchen and the general store. Takes about an hour to go through. I think they advertise a native American section but that part is very small.

Lots of neat scenes of life in the thirtys and fortys in farming communities. Also displays many native american artifacts from the Northwest area.
