We look forward to your visit to the Makah Museum

videoThe Makah Museum, also known as the Makah Cultural and Research Center, houses and interprets artifacts from the Ozette Archeological Site, a Makah village partly buried by a mudslide 300-500 years ago and discovered in 1970. The museum provides a glimpse of pre-contact Makah life. The exhibits feature 500 artifacts including whaling and fishing gear, basketry and replicas of a full size long house and canoes.

The museum opened in 1979 and is open to the public 7 days per week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
