  • This place is so awesome. Fun place to come for a date. Or with family, or alone! My grandparents were in town fr California and wanted to go, so I took them (my 3rd time) and we took the 230 free tour. The woman giving the tour was well-informed and passionate. Probably in her 60s (I hope that's not rude, but I forgot her name). We stayed after the tour for a while and talked with her quite a bit, along with some others that stuck around. Definitely go. Also Thursday pm is discount night.

  • The Totem Room is awe inspiring. The landscaping and architecture are impressive. A must go to place to understand the Pacific Northwest experience. I take all of my out of town friends here. Simply amazing.

  • Unique world-class exhibit. The core of the museum is built around an outstanding collection of Indigenous Peoples art & artifacts from the Pacific Northwest and around the world. So, if you are interested in Aboriginal or First Nations culture, then this is an amazing place to visit. The collection of totem poles is superb and in the other half of the gallery, don't just look at the displays. There are actually drawers upon drawers of other items to see. Each time you open a drawer, you will discover a fascinating piece of history and a window into a very different, interesting way of life.

  • Beautiful layout with a all outside and great exhibits in display. Allot a good 2-3 hours if you want to go through all the rooms in some detail. Don't miss out on the exhibits behind the building next to the lake

  • So much to see to do it in one day. One can walk the Museum in one day, however to really appreciate the Museum I would say two maybe even three days. I was so overwhelmed with all the different exhibits. I really enjoyed the artists work from Masks, Totem poles, clothing, boats, arrows, spears, paddles, tools, dolls, idols, Gods, statues, cookware, eating utensils. Rows and rows of artifacts. The Museum is wheel chair friendly, it has a cafeteria, however no food or drink is allowed in the Museum where artifacts are, the museum provides lockers has bathrooms right from the entrance toward the cafeteria. You are allowed to take pictures, videos, but again so much to see and want to share it's an amazing place. I would say bring your well behaved children they would enjoy it.
