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 and gravesite of Suquamish Chiefs Seattle and Wahalchu, the Cowling Creek Center and much more.
A perfect solution for larger than 60 student groups; rotate students by splitting the group to tour the museum and enjoy what else Suquamish has to offer. The Museum Tour Scheduler can assist in setting the schedule timetable. The cultural sites are un-guided and within walking distance of the Museum (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.
Contact us to learn more about the available resources to maximize the learning experience and facilitate ease of access.
