Board a vintage vessel
This activity is a twofer; opportunities exist in both Gig Harbor and Olympia. At the Hands On Children’s Museum in Olympia, the 56-foot Megan D offers ropes and ladders to climb, a walking plank, and countless gadgets and toggles to push and pull. At the Harbor History Museum in Gig Harbor, the 65-foot vintage fishing boat Shenandoah is being lovingly restored for its 100th birthday, but it’s still a beauty inside and out.
