Wonderful collection of antique lighting in the museum

Stopped in to look at the artwork and antiques. Great place to find items to refurbish Victorian home. The museum is a wonderful nostalgic tour of lighting through the years.

On the way into Port Townsend on SR 20. Hard to miss this place. Lots of lights, but ultra right wing politics are not my cup of tea.

A lovely place to visit in Port Townsend. Such an array of fine, clean, high quality antiques. Could spend hours wandering here and imagining a time gone by in all its grand.

Full of all kinds of lighting fixtures from grand chandeliers to lamps. Lots of art deco. Visited with friends and we all loved it. You wouldn't think a museum of lighting fixtures would be all that exciting, but they are pretty amazing.

I always stop in here when visiting Port Townsend. All kinds of treasures. Selection of drawer handles is great. Be sure and visit upstairs.

After checking out the antique lighting store we went upstairs to explore the museum. We had no idea what to expect and thus we were pleasantly surprised by the creativety of lamp makers during the Art Deco era.

It looks like a bank converted into a hardware store, but while it does sell items, it is an antique store that specializes in lighting. You have to see this place to believe it.
