Makah Cultural and Research Center Review

The outstanding Makah Cultural and Research Center displays thousands of Makah art pieces and artifacts, many eons old. Done in low lights and rich timbers, the space is divided into an easy route of intriguing exhibits. The centerpiece is a full-size cedar longhouse, complete with hand-woven baskets, fur skins, cattail wool, grass mats on the bed planks, and a background of tribal music. Another section houses full-size whaling and seal-hunting canoes and weapons. Other areas show games, clothing, crafts, and relics from the ancient Ozette Village mudslide. The small shop stocks a collection of locally made art pieces, books, and crafts; plan to spend some time looking around. This is an impresssive a museum as you'd find in any major city, and should be a stop on any itinerary in the region.
