“cute history of the area”
Reviewed 31 March 2013

A cute, very home-made museum, run by volunteers. Gives a history of the area, demonstrates some old household items, as well as tools from a blacksmith shop. At a bargain rate!

“Excentric”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

Loved the museum and the Kinetic Sculpture displays. It's small and could use a good cleaning, but is fun.

“Loved the town!”
Reviewed 24 July 2012

Museum (and gift shop) were nice, but absolutely loved the town. The beautifully painted houses and interesting shops were nice, but the cemetery was my favorite part, I think. It was a misty, foggy morning when we were there and the tombstones going up, up, up the side of the hill with dark trees in the background made for a perfect setting.

“Fantastic historical gem”
Reviewed 11 July 2012

Great, informative exhibits that bring Ferndale's past alive. My 4 kids enjoyed the museum as much as I did. The entrance fees of $1 for adults and 50 cents for kids made this an affordable family activity.
