We love to eat at the Cafe. Small but nice gift shop. The Campbell House is wonderful and lots of history.

Nice, nice way to spend an afternoon and learn some things about the Northwest. Knowledgeable and helpful staff. Complete permanent collection, very nice representation of the area and it's history. Fabulous displays of native artifacts, stunning bead work and baskets. So very glad not to have missed it.

This is an extremely small art museum. It is probably the smallest art museum I have ever visited. The architecture of the building is warm and airy. It's a great spot to read a book or to eat lunch at the cafe. There is a room featuring Native American artists, and a couple of the paintings are outstanding. The best part for me was visiting the Campbell House, which is right next door. The Campbell House is just beautiful. The tour is part of the $7 admissions fee. Overall I would say you could spend about two hours here. I recommend it for rainy days when you can't get outside.
