“Great museum for a small town.”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

The museum is great for out of town guests. Keep in mind this will not be the Smithsonian. It is a SMALL TOWN museum! So much to see packed into this place. Always a great way to relive my childhood, I don't think much has changed since my first visit in the 90s! Fabulous quality for a small town!

“Fabulous find!”
Reviewed June 30, 2012 via mobile

Great find. Who knew such a small town museum could hold so much interesting history. Allow more time than you would for a typical small museum. You won't want to miss anything!

This isn't a huge museum, but it is well done for a local spot.

“Educational! Entertaining! An amazingly large museum with fantastic displays.”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

A wonderful find in the middle of this relatively small town, the Lynden Pioneer Museum is a fantastic outing. Allow yourself several hours --- this isn't an excursion you'd want to have to hurry through. The staff are welcoming, informed, and proud of their town and museum (and well they should be). A fun "surprise" is the fact that there are a large number of carriages, vehicles, pieces of farm machinery, bicycles---and more in a basement that had to be dug so there was a place to house the collections! The re-creation of an old time Lynden town street---with various shops, a cafe, etc. is visible from the "street" level and also from a second floor balcony surrounding the town. We were only in Lynden from a Friday night through Sunday morning, and, although our visit to the Museum absorbed a proportionately large part of our free time, we were not at all sorry we spent our entire Saturday afternoon in the Museum!

“Better than the Bellingham Museum!! So much more to see!!”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

You almost need 2 days to really go over the place and see every detail on display! They also are very welcoming and have plays, history slides etc. offered on occasion.
