Port Angeles Fine Arts Center is a unique indoor-outdoor facility that is well-loved by locals. This small museum, housed in a former modern showcase home, displays contemporary art of the Pacific Northwest. But the real attraction is outside: Five acres of wooded property contain dozens of installation art pieces, which visitors have to search out among the trees. Kids can run down the various pathways and explore these oversized objects, such as a giant ball of ivy “yarn,” in a safe, clean environment. Found objects and living materials are incorporated into the art, making the whole concept unique and interesting. A free, fun activity that’s only slightly off the beaten path, the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center is a “museum without walls” that everyone in the family can enjoy.
