Some fascinating artifacts, pictures, etc. explaining the history of Moclips and the area. The attendant was eager to share his knowledge when asked. Small, with limited room to display everything, so don't expect some sophisticated museum, but well worth a stop. (Only open weekends during...More

Nice little museum. Rather small and cluttered, but I believe they'll be moving to a larger site soon. I enjoyed learning more about local history.

This a very small museum but well worth the half hour or so it takes to tour it. Where else can you see a collection of keys? It is free but a donation would be appreciated.

If you want to get a good idea of this area's history this is the place. The board is working diligently to procure funding for a new and modern museum (they have the land) but the charm will be lost that this old building holds.

Small, free, very local, quite charming. Does a good job describing the local social history. A lot of interesting stuff crammed into what was a small store. They have plans for a new space so don't pass up the donations box. We loved it.
