Very interesting museum. Covers much of the Willamette Valley. Excellent displays, helpful staff, fine small library and easy access. This is a little jewel.

This was so interesting -- I learned about the WW II camp Adair. I was amazed at the building in which it is housed because it is concrete and block and had been moved from another site. There are descriptions of when Albany used to host huge logging festivals.

Free but worth a donation. I have taken my grandchildren here and they learned a great deal about the history of the area. Take the time to ask about the interesting videos.

you can spend a lot of time learning all relevant things Albany. (They do have a place to sit and take a break) Just a very interesting place. There are people to explain things and relate many interesting facts. THERE IS NO ADMISSION CHARGE! Knock yourself out

Lots of great displays. Albany has one of the highest popultions of historic architecture. This is a great stop to learn more about the history of the town and learn why there is a "Montieth" district and a "Hacklman" district!

This small museum is staffed by a wonderful group of people. We stopped at the museum "just to waste sometime" while on vacation. but found the museum very informative. The staff helped me understand many interesting things about the local area. Well worth the trip.
