We spent a hour going through the museum. Amazing how they were able to use the natural environment to support their needs. We should all be as smart about using sustainable materials as they were! Cedar was used to make their baskets, shelter, clothes, canoes,...More

Really enjoyed perusing the exhibits here. Great job of sharing history, punctuated with the displays. Watched a woman pound cedar and she was very gracious about explaining what she was doing and why she was doing it the way she was. Well worth a visit.

This museum was well laid out with beautiful displays. Besides that, the information was fascinating. I knew nothing of the Suquamish or Northwest natives so I read everything. The timeline was my favorite part, there are so many interesting stories and facts about the Suquamish...More

This is a relatively new museum or appeared that way. The displays were beautiful with exhibits most appropriate for the Suquamish 1st nation people. Museum staff and gift shop were also great. Highly recommended as a stop to know more about these wonderful people.

We weren't at all familiar about the History of Suquamish or the Native American Tribe. But the Museum was very informative about how interactive the whole North West Native Tribes were! They're culture, survival, decimation & eventually they're revival! I posted pictures of examples of...More
