Esperienza fantastica: È passato tanto tempo da quando sono stato lì. Quindi è stato fantastico e la presentazione quella notte è stata molto istruttiva e tuttavia frustrante. Per imparare ancora una volta quanto è stato brutto quando si tratta della nostra sicurezza la nostra sicurezza pubblica.

Esperienza fantastica: Alcuni mesi fa, abbiamo visitato l'edificio Lightcatcher per vedere la mostra temporanea "Fluid Formations: The Legacy of Glass nel Pacifico nord -occidentale". Oggi abbiamo visto la mostra "Selezioni Un/Natural". OH. Siamo rimasti così colpiti! Complimenti per i curatori per la creazione di queste mostre impressionanti con opere d'arte di alto livello. Siamo relativamente nuovi residenti di Bellingham e siamo così felici di avere un bel spazio del museo qui. Anche l'edificio del vecchio municipio era interessante, in particolare la "sala degli uccelli" al 2 ° piano. Davvero disposto, con carte d'identità (piuttosto che avere i nomi proprio accanto agli uccelli) in modo da poterti interrogare mentre impari i nomi degli uccelli che stai visualizzando. C'è un piccolo parcheggio gratuito proprio accanto all'edificio del municipio; Abbiamo parcheggiato lì e siamo andati prima a Lightcatcher, poi di nuovo all'edificio del municipio. C'è anche un parcheggio di strada, ma non era molto disponibile nelle vicinanze. Siamo stati anche felici di vedere che il Cafe Bar Cicotti (martedì-sabato, dalle 8:00 alle 21:00) all'interno dell'edificio Lightcatcher ha alcune buone opzioni vegetariane nel loro modesto menu. Ci siamo uniti al museo, ovviamente!

Esperienza fantastica: In qualche modo non ero mai stato al Museo Whatcom nemmeno pensato di aver vissuto qui per circa 7 anni! Sono così felice di essere finalmente andato. Il personale era molto gentile e ben informato e la collezione di fotografie, artefatti e display erano vari e altrettanto interessanti. Un'altra cosa grandiosa del museo nel vecchio municipio è che l'edificio stesso fa parte della storia di Bellingham. Anche l'ammissione è molto ragionevole a 10 $ per gli adulti. Non so se questa è sempre una cosa, ma il giorno in cui ho visitato, l'ammissione al vecchio municipio ha anche coperto l'edificio del vetro leggero.

Esperienza positiva: Il terzo piano è stata una grande sorpresa. Quindi così tanti uccelli ripieni. A parte questo, c'erano alcune storia e informazioni locali sugli indigeni. Abbastanza su scala ridotta ma il biglietto include l'ingresso del museo accanto.

Bellingham Experience 4 years ago

Esperienza fantastica: The two buildings of this museum can keep you busy all afternoon. See work by national-calibur artists in the Lightcatcher building downstairs and understand local Coast Salish culture upstairs. Then learn more local history details in the grand Victorian-era Old City Hall Building a block away.

Esperienza fantastica: A beautiful & well preserved historic building in the cozy cute town of Bellingham. The Whatcom Museum (Old City Hall) is a local gem and worth an afternoon of exploring. Free parking is limited but there's ample street parking. Wonderful chamber music concert venue for the Bellingham Chamber Music Society!

Esperienza fantastica: Neat little museum. The orientation video is a must see and includes a lot of info about the city’s growth and the building itself. 3rd floor is al birds and it’s a lot more interesting then expected.

Esperienza fantastica: Everything about our visit was perfect. The staff was AMAZING with all the kids and the people with kids that come regularly were very nice! I don't have a single, even remotely negative comment to make! Worth every cent of the $10!

Esperienza fantastica: Exploring this building -- Bellingham's Old City Hall -- is reason enough to visit this magnificent 19th Century landmark overlooking Bellingham Bay which now houses the museum. In addition to their regular collection which is worthy of exploring, the museum regularly rotates the collection and attracts a variety of excellent speakers, lecturers, historians and artist. Today, Sonoma-based painter and curator of “The Intimate Diebenkorn” (currently on exhibit at the Lightcatcher through August 19th) Chester Arnold, noted that mid-century painter, Richard Diebenkorn’s artworks “are the works of a modern master.” Arnold shared insight and depth into the life and work of Diebenkorn at a lecture in the Museum’s Rotunda Room this afternoon (Saturday, June 23). Diebenkorn’s personal experiences, especially the Bay Area landscape surrounding him, clearly shaped his style, perspective, and career. Next stop: the nearby Lightcatcher Museum (250 Flora Street -- two blocks away).

Alicia Jackson 5 years ago

Esperienza fantastica: Loved this museum! It just so happened to be Africa themed when we went. Having spent time in Tanzania myself, I was thrilled to find a UW professor giving a lecture discussing the Maasai and Tanzanian politics. The museum had quite a large display of elephant ivory and I am unsure how I feel about that. Regardless, the museum is splendid and a very pleasant stop.

Kimberly Jurgens 6 years ago

Esperienza fantastica: Always something new! Beautiful new exhibition on Coast Salish tribes that's full of information for adults and hands on for children. Also, many don't know that the admission paid gets you into the art museum, children's museum, AND natural history museum. So admission is pretty fair.

Bryan Langlois 6 years ago

Esperienza fantastica: We certainly don't visit this local icon often enough, but when we do I am always pleasantly surprised by the friendly, informative & quirky docents. They make the experience just a bit more memorable. This last visit we were treated to excellent views out of the upper turret overlooking Bham bay while bright god beams skittered over the water under a brooding sky, sorry I didn't get photos ;{)

Esperienza fantastica: With new exhibits every couple of months there's always something new to see here. The sections on historic Whatcom County (photographs, paintings, etc.) are particularly great for those interested in local history. When the Syre Education center is open it hosts an excellent collection of Pacific Northwest native people, plants, and animal artifacts. Pro-tip: your public library membership gets you free entrance to the museum once every 2 months for up to 6 people.
