Highly recommend and it's Free ! Some very interesting ocean facts and artifacts from the Japan Tsunami. Hard to believe some much stuff floats onto the beaches here in Washington from all around the Pacific rim !

We happened upon this museum & were very surprised to find so much there. The man there was very informative & friendly. The "hands on" museum was so much fun. Great place to take children of all ages. Free admission, but they gladly accept donations.

We took the grand kids ages 6-10 and they loved it. From
The hands on exhibits to the seashell room. Informative and kid friendly to keep their attention.

Free but donations appreciated.

So much information packed in to a small place. The volunteers had so much knowledge and were so friendly. It is a hands on experience, there are very few this in the exhibit you can't touch and hold. Worth the visit.

I went here based on the Trip Advisor reviews and was pleasantly surprised. There's some very interesting displays here and the volunteers are really nice and welcoming. Everything is hands on and my kids were quite interested in the exhibits. There's even a little playground in back. I didn't have any cash on me so I am mailing them a check because that's how great I thought this place was and I want to support it any way I can!
