This was an interesting hodge-podge of local historical interests. It is a low-budget assemblage of fire tower and lodge models, snow ski collection from perhaps the last 100 years, some wildlife exhibits, and other things. I liked it, but I didn't have much time to take it all in. Don't expect anything world class; it is a small-town museum.

Lots of memorabilia about skiing as well as information about the area. Helpful staff-recommended aTrilium Lake hiking trailto us when I asked about an easy hike, relatively flat. Turned out to be exactly what I was looking for.

A nice place to spend an hour and learn about the history and geography of the area, but not a destination in its own right.

If you'd like a physical feel of the historic Government Camp, a visit to this museum is a must. It is upstairs from the visitors center, which has a helpful staff and brochures and maps for lodging and activities in the Mt. Hood area.

This little cultural center has more to offer than its size would have you guess. Great little spot to go with the kids and a cute gift store on site.

Very informative and friendly staff and as stated, well worth the stop. It has a wide degree of displays to see ranging from the Barlow Trail history to the Timberline Lodge and other local attractions. The telling of the history of 'The Mountain' explains itself well. The bookstore allows you to take more detailed history home for future reading. Easy... More
