Great local museums are among the many fun things to do during your time in Bellingham. Here are some of the attractions you'll enjoy within the city of Bellingham:
Spread among three different buildings, the Whatcom Museum offers quality exhibitions of regional art, history, and culture. The newest addition, the Lightcatcher Building, features space for both national and regional exhibitions and is a Smithsonian affiliate. The Family Interactive Gallery inside the Lightcatcher offers kid-friendly interactive experiences.
Spark Museum of Electrical Invention (formerly the American Museum of Radio & Electricity)
The Spark Museum of Electrical Invention is home to an extensive collection that includes early radios, vacuum tubes, telephones, telegraphs, static electricity machines, and scientific apparatus. The collection of experimental setups from the early days of scientific exploration of electricity is particularly fascinating. Special exhibits include an accurate replica of the Titanic radio room, a 1930s living room where you can sit back and experience old-time radio entertainment, and an 18th-century laboratory that interprets basics of electricity. Highly recommended.
