The city looks a little rough as you drive through it and I passed on stopping to get something to eat but this land is beautiful.

We've been to the Makah Indian Reservation for two vacations, and we really love it there. The reservation itself may appear run down and questionable, but you have never met nicer people, and the reservation really has a lot to offer- beautiful scenery, great beaches,...More

A very nice drive to this place, the museum is a must see. realize it is a leisurely drive as the road hugs the coast and winds its way around outcroppings.

This museum has tons of information about the Makah. It is well done and complete. The views from the cliffs are amazing and well worth the hike out to the point.

The Makah Museum, featuring an in-depth examination of traditional culture is a must-see for those visiting the Olympic Peninsula. It offers a vivid picture of pre-settler life in this part of the world.

Stopped and got food a few times. People are friendly, wants to talk and the small harbor is nice to walk.

Liked everything. Incredible that you are actually looking at stuff that was used 400 to 500 years ago. Gentleman at the front counter has been there forever (20 years?) and courteous but a bit opinionated (aren't we all?). Well worth the drive.
