“Great video presentation”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Video for approx 15 mins gives fascinating info re the area. Information cards with all exhibits explaining what you are looking at and small video screens where you can press the red button and find out more. Great shop with lots of interesting books etc.

“Nice little Museum”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

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.

“Very Good Small Museum”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

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.
