A small museum that has a very nice display of local history, artifacts and art. Some very nice painting and photographs along with a section on Alaska fishing and the sea. Well worth the three dollar entrance fee.

Small museum but thorough with artifacts and history of the small area. Displays were nice and staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Keep your expectations reasonable, and this little museum will not disappoint. It does not have a lot of things on exhibit, but there are a number of interesting photos with explanatory information. It has clean bathrooms, and is near the Married Man's trail which is very scenic and leads to the fish ladder by the bridge.

This museum is only two rooms, hence the three dollar entrance fee. I found the exhibits really interesting. Lots of old pictures as well. A pleasant way to spend 30 minutes. It is close to the entrance to the funicular and married man's trail.
