A must see for visitors to Mt. St. Helens
Aug 2015 • Couples
This is a small museum packed with great information and very knowledgeable hosts. A great compliment to the Park exhibits. The morning we stopped in a group of middle school children arrived for a presentation that they allowed us to sit in on. The slides and commentary were very good. Paul Taylor was taking the group on a tour for the rest of the day and invited us, but we did not wish to spend the day with 25 middle school children (although they were very well behaved!).

The museum has an ash exhibit, wall displays showing the timeline of the changes to the area before and after the 1980 eruption, bookstore, and meeting room. They offer guided tours of the area - see the website for details.

The most interesting item to me was the information about how the logs in Spirit Lake were being submerged in sediment at the bottom of the lake. I remember being taught in school about trees in California that were buried in a similar way, and they said it took millions of years to create each section. It seemed very odd to me, because wood usually rots in a few years if left exposed to the elements. So here was real evidence of how those logs probably were covered up in a very short time.

They had other illustrations that showed how the area around Mt. St. Helen's presents evidence of a much younger earth than some scientists report. Definitely a place to visit if you are in the area.

Great free museum with lots of information about recent changes to the NW area. They also have free classes and presentations which are very informative. I usually take family there when they visit...

Small Musuem worth stopping by on the way to Mt. St. Helens
Jun 2015
I don' t know why my first review wasn't published. We stopped by on the way to Mt. St. Helens. Cookies, brownies, tea, coffee and juice were out on the patio. They have a view of Mt. St. Helens from the back deck.

Inside is good information, good books and a good movie.

A Family Favorite!

Tiny building, but packs a lot of information in it. The curators have prepared professional and informative posters in a "walking tour" around the rooms. The bookstore has a great variety of books from ICR, and as well as other curriculum. Tours are free, and there is usually cookies and cheese set out for guests staying for the power point presentation (which is also available on DVD for a donation). Guided hikes are free to schedule too. Over 30 years experience, with frequent big name creation scientists and local volunteers. Donation-based museum, pays no salaries, but offers a lot of encouragement and science learning helps. Worth every minute and penny spent!

Fantastic hosts
Aug 2013 • Family
In addition to the Biblical worldview, which I very much appreciated, our host took us on a personalized tour of the area. We saw many interesting things which we were sure to miss if we hadn't had a guide. He was with us for several hours, and there was no charge! A freewill donation was an option if we chose to do so. They also had a ton of resources available, including some souvenirs, at a fraction of the price of the "official" gift shops at the tourist attractions. A good, honest business that I would highly recommend.

Mt St Helens from a Christian perspective
Jul 2013 • Family
The eruptions of Mt St Helens 1980 Shed a lot of light on the fossil beds, and how The Flood of Noah's day changed the world. This museum is small compared to many others, but it is packed full of information that will help you understand what you're seeing when you look at the fossil beds and the upheaval of the Earth's topography. One of the more interesting parts was the new perspective on Yellow Stone Park's petrified tree forest, and how Yellow Stone Park took down their sign explaining how the petrified forest came into being, after the studies on Spirit Lake's soon to be petrified forest.

There is NO admission charge, the proprietors are very friendly, knowledgeable and friendly. There are many books and DVD's available to purchase, with bonus offering for a fairly small purchase amount.

The museum is about fifteen (15) minutes from I-5 Freeway, it's on your way to see Mt St Helens. Plan to spend at least 1/2 hour, longer if there's a movie scheduled.
