“Great Small Town Museum”

Lynden Pioneer Museum
Ranked #1 of 15 things to do in Lynden
Attraction details
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is one of the best small town museums that we have been to. Inside you can stroll a simulation of the main street of town during the early 20th century. There are antique/classic cars, antique carriages, war memorabilia and much more. The building itself is somewhat historic with an old bank vault in the lobby.

When viewing the museum from the street, it didn't look like much. But my firends have been there before, there were so many things to see inside. Good documentation of the history of the area. Enjoyed the car collection downstairs. Also like seeing the miniature circus upstairs.

This is a great museum. I learned a lot about Whatcom County, and I grew up here! They have lots of antiques and interesting information on the history of the area.

As others have noted, this place is impressive given what they have to work with. It's almost entirely volunteer-run (may be entirely so) and has a limited budget to work with, yet it is packed with history and well-cared-for displays, right down to a full-blown recreation of main street. If I had any criticism it would be that there is just too much stuff for the small space. It felt a little crammed in at times. Definitely worth a visit.

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!
