“Take your time...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

I've wanted to go down during the Memorial Day service, and maybe this year I will. That service is held on the water...just a short distance from the museum. You'll like the historical value and the peopole who are there. They love their volunteer dedication to ocean...to Westport...and to the museum.

“Go for the Fresnel Lens”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

Having spent the day at the museum in Aberdeen the day before, I found the Westport Maritime Museum far less enticing. The animal skeletons glassed in the yard were mildly interesting, more so late at night when they catch your eye from the road.

I'll admit, I have no knowledge of or interest in large ships and coastguard activity, but I am fascinated by lighthouses. I paid my 5 dollars strictly for the Fresnel lens and felt I got my money's worth. I had the whole room to myself and watched every inch of the machine works and the amazing glass spinning. It is too bad they don't stay open in the evenings; I bet it is an even better show than my bright morning visit.

Other bits - great bathrooms in the lens house, wheelchair accessible, and locally made crafts in the gift shop.

“Must See”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2012

Really worth the small cost to stop by and check this museum out.
Kids loved the hands on portion and we loved all the artifacts and history we never knew about Westport and Grays Harbour.
