Fodor's Review

Thousands of Makah art pieces and artifacts, many eons old, fill a space done in low lights and rich timbers and 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.
