We were visiting with friends and they suggested we visit this gem of a cultural center. We met Matt Springer, the Director of the facility and a good friend of our friends. He gave us a full tour of the museum and center and we were very impressed with the entire venue. We could not believe the outstanding historical displays... More

I visited the Cultural Center and Museum thinking it was Oregon Trail related. I was disappointed that it wasn't but certainly not disappointed in what was there. Very interesting and we so enjoyed learning more about the history of the area. Well presented!

This multi-purpose convention center, museum, exhibit hall and theater is a real gem in this small town. The museum on the east end of the building has interesting artifacts & talks about the different cultures that settled in this area.

The Four Rivers Cultural Center and Museum is a pleasant surprise to find in such a small community. One end of it is a very flexible conference center, including a nice-sized theater where very high-quality performances and events are offered. The other end is an interesting museum and art display area. Beyond the building is an attractive Japanese garden with... More

We attened a wedding reception here, and were given a complimentary tour of the museum. The film at the beginning was very interesting and not overly environmental and political. We enjoyed the way the museum displays were set up. The reception room was perfect for the event as well. A very nice place.

They change some of the displays each month. This month has a lot of Indian artifacts and they've added more to the outdoor Japanese garden.

This is a well thought, inclusive center that truly brings the local history into view. Worth at least an hour - take it as a driving break - or spend the afternoon. Easy to find a highway crossroads.
