“Can rival anyone's local museum”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

This museum showcases Native American artifacts as well as items from the town, the wildlife, early settlers, fishing industry,
logging industry, and local shipwrecks and former lights from local lighthouses.
It is "chock full" of amazing sights and is well worth the time to stop in and get some local flavor.

“What a gem”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

This place is worth a visit. I love history and try to visit museums in towns when I can. For a $3 "donation" you get a chance to see Crescent City's rich history. This is a 2 story (or maybe 2.5 story) building with exhibits of just about anything you can imagine. Interior of an early 1900's home, dentist office, ice cream parlor, jail cell. There was a full size fully restored carriage from early 1900's. lots of interesting stuff...I could go on and on. I probably spent an hour and a half just wandering around.

“Tons and tons of history ...”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Well worth the visit ... especially to see the 5th order Fresnel lense from the St. George Reef Lighthouse "up close and personal".

“Amazing collection!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

This museum takes hours to go through properly. The size and scope of the collection is AMAZING! I especially loved all the items from residents that show the daily lives from ye3ars ago. Worth the stop!
