There's A Mermaid Museum In Washington And It's Full Of Fascinating Oddities, Artifacts, And More
Three quarters of the planet is covered in water, and there’s a large part of the ocean that none of us will ever get to explore. If you really think about it, it’s easy to let your imagination run wild and wonder what secrets the sea could be hiding. Recently, a mermaid museum opened right here in Washington that’s not only dedicated to teaching ocean ecology “from seashore to sea floor,” but is also full of mermaid mythology and fascinating artifacts — and, if you’re lucky, real-life mermaids performing for you! Check out the International Mermaid Museum in Washington:
The International Mermaid Museum is located halfway between Aberdeen and Westport on Highway 105.
The museum is part of the Westport Winery Garden Resort, which also has Ocean's Daughter Distillery and the Sea Glass Grill.
Step inside and you'll find a collection of eclectic exhibits, many of which have been donated.
In fact, if you have your own mermaid memorabilia you're willing to part with, you can donate it to the museum as well.
From shimmering costumes to educational displays, you never know what you'll find here.
And since admission is just $3 (children five and under are free), you can visit as often as you'd like.
Make sure to check out the quarterly art display featured at the museum, which showcases the work of Washington's talented local artists.
The 2021 fall show that opens Oct. 1 focuses on the integral role the commercial fishing industry has played in Washington.
If you're lucky, you might even catch a performance by a mermaid or two while you're there!
Mermaids sometimes swim over from out of town to perform or lounge in the exhibits.
While you're here, make sure to visit the Sea Glass Grill for a meal and a refreshing beverage.
The grill is open daily from during museum hours, and it's a fun destination for all ages.
The International Mermaid Museum is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
If you love it, you can purchase an annual membership and get unlimited visits, special discounts, and a Home of the Moclips Mermaid decal.
