The Suquamish community includes many historic and contemporary sites that may augment the visit to the museum, including, the historic waterfront home of the Suquamish, Old Man House Park; the new Suquamish House of Awakened Culture; the St. Peter's Mission Church Cemetery with the gravesites of Suquamish Chiefs Seattle and Wahalchu; the Cowling Creek Center and much more.

 

A perfect solution for larger student groups is to rotate student groups between sites, most within easy walking distance of the Museum. The Museum Tour Scheduler can assist in setting the rotation timetable. The nearby cultural sites are un-guided, but ask us for literature to help enrich your experience. The Cowling Creek Education Center offers guided experiences and is a short 5 minute bus ride from the Museum.

 

For more information about school programming and resources look under the EDUCATION tab under Educators above.
