  • If staying at the Best Western in Friday Harbor, take a short walk across the street to the Historical Museum. Staff are very friedly and will give you lots of Friday Harbor history.

  • This is a little gem parked away! Small collection of interesting buildings, many explainer boards and many neat photos. Very nice staff. They stayed a few minutes past closing for us just so we could explore the grounds without feeling rushed. Interesting that some of the older buildings have been moved/saved, lot of history. The main museum building is the best with recreation scenes.
  • What an experience! The items in this museum are amazing! So much to see! I fully appreciate all the work that went into this museum. So much to see. The jail, the mining equipment, the tools, the stones! Beautiful Beautiful!
