Search Neah Bay Washington
The center features exhibits pertaining to Makah history and culture, as well as flora, fauna and wilderness habitat and sport fishing.

Some items are 500-year-old finds from the Makah's ancestral village of Ozette, which was buried in a catastrophic mudslide.

The Ozette Archaeological Collection is the largest pre-contact Northwest Coast Indian collection in the country. Replicas of a 60-foot cedar longhouse and oceangoing canoes are displayed.

Guided tours by reservation also available. The museum is supported by a modest admission charge and tax-deductible memberships.
