My favorite type of museum focusing on local life. Ladies at entrance were a pleasure to talk with. You could tell they enjoyed being there with pride in their town. Ferndale is the gem of Humboldt county.
Fun place filled with wonderful people. You can tell they are truly excited to show you the rich history of Ferndale. Only $2 for a adult ticket, and free for anyone under 16.
