I wonder where to park vehicle here if the museum is close (open Saturday and Sunday). We drove around and couldn't find a "legal" place to park. I came out to take pictures while husband still in a car. Like others said, it can be seen from highway 101 on east side.

This tree was planted on this spot over a hundred years ago. There are flowers and a nice little path leading up to it. If you like to read the history of a place you should pull off on this little side road and check this out.

Interesting little museum and the tree really is huge. The picture is of the tree with my 6'2 husband standing under it.

It is a big tree. Therefore, it is easily seen from 101. The surounding landscape is park-like. Nice place for a rest from driving.

Nice to look at when you pass by but the museum part was closed, bummer. It is a nice tree though. Yup

It definitely is a BIG tree. That's it. Nothing special in the immediate vicinity. Not worth visiting Brookings just to see this tree.

The visitors center/museum isn't open in winter, but we recommend stopping to admire this magnificent tree.
