Don't be put off by the appearance of this small museum. Next to the blockhouse stands what looks like a private home. A peek in the door reveals a small exhibit space that doesn't seem encouraging at first. Go ahead -- step inside and pay the nominal entry fee ($6 for a family).
This museum is an old style, small town museum with a few cherished artefacts, many excellent pictures and lots of wonderful text. Take your time and read about the history of the area over the last 150 years -- native americans, sea captains, farmers and would-be developers. It's the best background reading you'll find anywhere and will improve your enjoyment of Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve immensely.

Walk out to the wharf for the view of Coupeville. There's also the skeleton of a young gray whale that beached near here. The stores in the wharf are full of tourist junk but you can refuel here if you're coming by boat.
Classic Coupeville -- historical / touristy / functional.

In my August 1999 visit to Coupeville, we visited the Coupeville wharf again. If you compare this photo to the one above, you can see that they renovated the wharf.
