My husband and I were just walking around trying to kill time when we came across the museum. We weren't really expecting much, but since it was free admission we decided to check it out. We were handed a booklet when we walked in that had a list and small description of everything in the display cases. We really enjoyed... More

The museum is well kept and fascinating with many intriguing pieces of time gone by. If you have a chance call ahead of time and reserve a tour with John going over the Taft historical district. What a wonderful orator John is transporting you back to the beginning of this great coastal area. And it's all free are you kidding... More

This was a much better museum than we expected to find, especially since it was free. The displays are made more interesting by the inclusion of actual quotes from people's journals, photographs, and interesting historical items. Two floors full of local history that should be appreciated by anyone with an interest in the history of the area.

The North Lincoln County Historical Museum is a small museum covering the history and culture of the Lincoln County and Oregon Coast area. There were some interesting exhibits of native art, glass floats (who knew there were so many kinds?!?), and many artifacts from the area's history, people, and places. What was disappointing was the interpretation of most of the... More

The information about the museum reviewed by the staff was extremely helpful. It was fun to spend a few minutes learning about the history of the area and the museum itself.

Really interesting to learn about the history of the local area, definitely a good way to spend an hour or two. If you're visiting the Taft district be sure to call in, great area for children upstairs too!

I like small, local museums, but this was kind of a let down. Interesting, and it had a small play area for kids (which got them out of the heat for a few minutes and kept them occupied), but only minimally interesting to adults.

I've always enjoyed small, local museums and this is a good one. It's on the 101 going through Lincoln City in the Taft District. There's no entrance fee, but they would certainly welcome your donation. It celebrates the local people and history, including the Siletz Indian tribes, pioneers and the logging industry. I also enjoyed the exhibit of Japanese fishing... More
