The Polson Museum

The Polson Museum Review

In a 26-room mansion built in 1924, this museum is filled with artifacts and mementos relating to Grays Harbor's past. You can walk through the remodeled dining room, kitchen, and living room, where an exhibit traces the history of tall ships in the Pacific Northwest. Upstairs is the logging exhibit, with a replica Little Hoquiam Railroad; a period-costume room; and the Polson children's room and dollhouse. Outside you can wander the riverside grounds, which have exotic trees and a rose garden.
