This is a high quality natural history museum tucked in close beside the Douglas County fairgrounds south of Roseburg. The fee is modest and the staff take pains to answer any questions about the exhibits. There are things to see and wonder at for all age groups and levels of previous knowledge.

We stopped to look at the steam engine out in front and decided to go in. Met at the door by a most helpful and cheerful woman who explained what we would find down each hallway and we were on our way. Very interesting. If you have children, there are some great interactive activities. There are stairs though and no... More

As a genealogist, I was very impressed with the holdings of this museum. A very knowledgeable staff, very good Web site. DISCLAIMER: I visited before 2014, but tripadvisor doesn't support earlier dates. I can't imagine that the quality of the staff and museum has declined. I urge anyone interested in Douglas County history to spend a few hours there. Easy... More

How many times have you driven past the Douglas County Fairgrounds and read the reader board in front of the Museum? How many times have you stopped at the Museum? What a shame. Douglas County has the best Museum on I-5 and not nearly enough of us patronize it. It has wonderful exhibits of History, our culture and natural wildlife,... More

I was surprised to find a place that had displays on so many things I find interesting, A live rattlesnake, fur trapper's cabin, old RR depot, lots of things for kids to do, and helpful staff. We spent several hours here and wished I could have spent more. Don't miss this place if you are in or traveling through Roseburg.

Great place for kids and adults can take it in as well! Location is next to the fairgrounds, not ideal, but you can see it off the freeway.

this is a tidy little museum with well done displays that are changed up frequently. we enjoyed visiting from time to time when our kids were small, and still enjoy new exhibits as adults. local history as well as greater displays. also offer a lot of community activities. definitely worth a visit. great value as well.
