The museum was great. We learned quite a bit about the area. Ironically we have been going to Lava for years and never went to the museum. It had tons of interesting stories and pieces of history.

The museum was in an old bank building and was a bit cramped, but filled with a lot of local history and artifacts! There was no charge to enter; however they do accept donations... Definitely worth the 30 - 45 minutes walking through. The Docent was very friendly and knowledgeable!

Among the exhibits is one devoted to that segment of the Oregon Trail that passed through/near Lava Hot Springs. The exhibit is a nice complement to interpretations offered by other museums and historic sites along... More
