We look forward to your visit to the Makah Museum

videoThe Makah Museum, also known as Makah Cultural and Research Center, houses and interprets artifacts from the Ozette Indian Village Archeological Site, a Makah village partly buried by a mudslide at Lake Ozette around 1750 and discovered in 1970. The museum provides a glipse of pre-contact tribal life. The exgibits includes a replica long house and thousands of artifacts including canoes, basketry, whaling and fishing gear.

The museum was created under the leadership of tribal chairman Edward Eugene Claplanhoo and opened in 1979, soon after the Lake Ozette site was unearthed.
