“Nicely put-together museum”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

Really nice collection of artifacts and photos from pioneer days, lots from the 19th century. The building itself is an ugly concrete bunker isolated on a cul-de-sac. We were the only visitors on a day when the downtown was full of shoppers. It's worth seeking out.

“Great Collection of Local Memorabilia”
Reviewed 17 May 2013

For a small county museum this is extremely nice. Older exhibits, but all of well presented and described local artifacts, photos, and a display of the work of Skagit county's premier architect. WALK up to the museum, then you can have a bigger lunch at one of the fine restaurants down the hill.

“A place as old as it's holdings”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

The museum and how it is set up feels pretty dated. Which was OK as that lent charm to the extremely dated displays. Beautiful view off the back of the museum. Spooky doll display. I liked it and felt that my $5/person fee was worth it.
