The Suquamish Museum plays a crucial role in preserving the heritage and artifacts of the Suquamish people while creating an interactive environment that proclaims the living history of the tribe in a sustainably designed environment. Nestled in the forest, the new museum replaces the existing tribal museum and includes a gift shop, performance and educational spaces, exhibit galleries, artifact storage, botanical garden and craft workspace to promote educational activities such as wood carving and craft making. Sustainable design features are incorporated and serve as a simple and elegant shell to help explain and protect the history of the Suquamish people.
