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

Okay, all you I-5 warriors...how many times have we westerners tooled up or down Interstate 5 and driven right past the Douglas County fairgrounds and Museum Complex just south of the Roseburg? we have all done so MANY times! In so doing, we miss out on a amazing peek back at the history of the region in general as well... 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.

What a gr8 stop for a break or just to see the well-done exhibits and learn a bit about area history. There is info about the Oregon Trail, complete with full size wagon train and items carried, much local history with the old train depot & train, logging and many historical farm/household items. Kids were fascinated with the wide variety... More
