Sea & Shore Museum at Port Gamble General Store

When you visit Port Gamble General Store & Café, don't forget to visit the Sea & Shore Museum on the 2nd Floor overlooking the General Store.

Collected and curated by Tom Rice, a native and former, long-time resident of Port Gamble, the museum has been here since 1973 and is the second largest, privately-owned shell museum in the world. The largest one is located in Phuket, Thailand, where Tom now resides! Hint: Tom did all over again in Thailand! 

Port Gamble General Store & Café has the unique privilege of watching over the museum while its Curator enjoys life in Thailand.

Don't miss our great, fascinating museum and bring the kids. They will love it!
