Fodor's Review

Beneath the town's quaint General Store, the Smithsonian-designed Port Gamble Historic Museum takes you through the region's timber heyday. Highlights include artifacts from the Pope and Talbot Timber Company, which built the town, and realistic ship's quarters. Above the General Store, the Of Sea and Shore Museum is open daily and houses more than 25,000 shells as well as displays on natural history. Kids love the weird bug exhibit. In between visits stop at the General Store for souvenirs or a huge ice-cream cone or hand-dipped milkshake, or stay for lunch or dinner in the acclaimed restaurant in the back of the building.
