Since its inception two years ago, the Hammer Museum has been one of the most popular attractions in Haines. It is not only a unique glimpse into the world of a collector, it also serves as a chronology of life and livelihood that would otherwise be lost....An authentic experience for visitors and a source of pride for locals.
-- Michelle Glass, 2004, Haines Tourism Director
