Tulalip's Native American Cultural Center

An educational and outdoorsy adventure just 45 minutes outside of Seattle.
| FROM THE PRINT EDITION |
 
 

For a lovely late-summer outing with the kids, make the 45-minute drive north to the brand-new Hibulb Cultural Center and Natural History Preserve, a lovingly assembled museum of local Native American cultures, history and lore in Marysville. Kids can sit in a cedar longhouse, listen to stories told by Tulalip storytellers, gawk at story poles, carvings and arrowheads, and then explore the center’s 50-acre nature preserve, complete with salmon-laden streams, cedar groves and wetlands. Opened last summer, the 23,000-square-foot museum—named for a former local tribal settlement—also offers lectures and classes in tribal crafts.

$10 adult, $6 child, younger than 5 are free. Open Tues.–Fri., 10 a.m.–5 p.m.; Sat.‒Sun., noon–5 p.m. Tulalip, 6410 23rd Ave. NE; 360.716.2600; hibulbculturalcenter.org
