Willapa Bay Interpretive Center

The center, a replica of an oyster station house, exhibits the 150-year history of oyster growing on Willapa Bay.

The interior walls of the building are covered with quotes, old photographs, and a chronology of the oyster industry and a 20-foot mural of the bay. Artifacts including an oyster work skiff built in the late 1920?s and other tools of the trade are yours to discover.

Watch a video of the oyster Industry and Willapa Bay ecology and learn all about oystering on the bay.

Open: Memorial Day through Labor Day, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Holidays, 11am to 4pm. For Kite Festival week and to arrange group tours, please call the Port of Peninsula Office at 360.665.4547
