The Hammer Museum, An Institution Dedicated to Preserving the History of Humanity’s First Tool

The Hammer Museum in Haines, Alaska is an institution dedicated to preserving the history of humanity’s first tool, the hammer. The museum posts images of some of their more than 2,000 hammers on their excellent Instagram account.

From the land of the pharaohs to the land down under, ancient to modern, two inches to twenty feet, the Hammer Museum has something for everyone and is an experience that cannot be missed.

We love our ball peen hammers here at the museum. #hammers #hammerart #hammermuseum #alaska #ballpeen or #ballpein
