BMM GETS NEW LEASE ON LIFE!

Bellingham Maritime Museum LogoThe Bellingham Maritime Museum is very gratified to have received a surge of new sponsorship which will allow it to expand its’ existing floorspace. The individuals, businesses and foundations who have come forward in support of the maritime museum all have remarked on the tremendous value that the maritime museum brings in keeping alive the great maritime heritage and culture which has formed the character and content of our seaport community.

Of particular value is the Uniflite exhibit which features the iconic Vietnam era “PBR”, the River Patrol Boat, which draws military veterans and their families from all around the country. The Bellingham Maritime Museum has no paid employees, and has received no taxpayer dollars over the years in the formation and operation of this community based organization.

The museum looks forward to continued development of sustainable programs, exhibits, and events which will lead to a permanent presence on the shores of Bellingham Bay.
