Whidbey and Camano Islands have a long history and there are three museums detailing that history.
The Island county museum has displays on Native American life, early settlers, as well as more "modern" early 20th century life when Whidbey Island was a step or two behind the mainland.
The Langley Whale Center is where you can learn all about the orca, grey whales, minke, humpback whales and other creatures that are in Puget Sound.
The PBY Naval Air Museum is a great way to see many of the artifacts and memorabilia related to Whidbey Island's Military History. The museum even has a restored PBY Catalina on display across Pioneer Way from the museum.
The South Whidbey Historical Museum in Langley, presents the artifacts and stories of the history of settling Whidbey Island.
