“Great for history and information”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014

Knowledgeable staff, lots on display, varied information on local history of Westport and surrounding area. Great history on Coast Guard too. Be sure to visit the adjacent building to see the Fresnel Light too.

“Great Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

What a great spot to spend time. Walk all the way to the end of the road and see the boardwalk. Buy fish from the little fish shack on the pier - it is so fresh and food and the prices are not out of line. We went back twice and would go again if we were in the area.

“Very interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

Stopping here (and the Grays Harbor Lighthouse) was a last minute decision, but well worth the extra time. An interesting time in Westport's history. Learning about, and seeing in person, the Destruction Island Lighthouse Lens was awesome!

“A little history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

Just off the beaten a few ft, but very interesting.. Learned a lot about the local marine life, wales, and a very good history of the waling industry.

“Slow and easy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

Westport is a small community with a lot of heart. Not as busy As Ocean Shores but there are things to see and do. In June they have Pirates Daze and the town becomes very active. The lookout tower is newer and very well located. There is a paved walking trail from near the lighthouse to very near town.
