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 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 started with a visit to Chief Seattle's gravesite and then proceeded to the museum. The museum tells the story of the Suquamish (place of clear salt water.) Very nice presentation, cedar designed timeline, many photographs, and more. Well worth the $3 admission. Gift shop...More
