I loved seeing all of the pieces uncovered by the Ozette archeological dig and learning more about the Makah people and their history here. Affordable entry to museum and nice gift shop.

This museum focuses on the Makah village of Ozette, which was buried under mud following an earthquake several hundred years ago, then rediscovered and excavated in recent years. There are various canoes used in whaling and fishing, long houses, and a great many, well-displayed artifacts...More

We visited in late December--the weather was cold--but museum attendant very friendly and knowledeable. They had a great gift shop--and we benefitted from end of the year sales.

Small but well-done museum focusing on the Makah Nation and archeological finds from the village of Ozette, which was buried in a mudslide. Nicely presented with interesting artifacts, displays, and photographs. Spent about an hour here and bought a couple gifts at the shop.

I agree about an hour to visit the museum. If like us you enjoy video presentations the one at the end of your walk through the museum is very good with tribal elder stories. The hike only takes about 20 minutes each way... More
