Very interesting Museum for those nature lovers and Native Americans of the Northwest. Highly recommended! Kids will enjoy the museum as well as those of us still kids at heart! Be prepared to get educated.

Quite the bargain too - discounted entry with our ticket from here to the Art Museum on campus was a bonus we didn't know about but it was worth every penny even if you don't double-up. Aside from the oldest shoe in the world that made the news recently there were plenty of artefacts from Native Americans and early Euro... More

The visit at this museum inside U of O was pretty excellent, especially with the help of a volunteer. A good hour to walk around and learn more about Oregon history, geology, anthropology, zoology and life stories. Definitely worth a visit for a smart hour.

This small museum packs a punch! Surprises await around every corner, as you wander into rooms showcasing ancient life in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest - from scary-looking, ice-age mammals like the Giant Sloth, to stunning replicas of an ancient saber-tooth salmon - over 7 feet long - that lived in Oregon more than 5 million years ago. Admission is... More

This is a small museum and doesn't take too long to go through it, but it in very interesting and it has the world's oldest sandals found in the area of Fort Rock. Very cool. Worth a visit on your trip to Eugene or the University of Oregon.

While on a campus tour, I was taken through. It has a very nice selection of natural and cultural artifacts and exhibits, without being too much. Nice to visit for an hour or so.

This museum is only 5 dollars (I'm pretty sure it's free or discounted to students) and was very well done. I had to refill the meter because there was so much to see. Learn all about how Oregon was formed, the nature, the people... If you're a history buff- it's a must see.
