The Suquamish Museum in Suquamish, WA
I wanted to see the Suquamish Museum, so we drove about 90 minutes north. It was a scenic drive and we chose not to take a ferry. So, we looped through Tacoma.
The Museum is small, but interesting with an introduction to the culture of the Suquamish people. The tradition of travel by canoe is being re-introduced through special events. There is a nice gift shop. The art style of the people of the region is very distinctive and beautiful. I bought a cape and a book about Chief Seattle.
Nearby, is the grave of Chief Seattle (Sealth) and a memorial to the many Suquamish veterans. These two features are within a five-minute walk of the Museum. The town is set on the water and is very pretty.
