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.

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

We were there with a group of about 40. They had a introduction to the museum, then we were given a guided tour of the museum. Our guide was very enthusiastic and had a very good knowledge of the museum. The logging section was very interesting and well done. It's a museum, what can I say? If you like visiting... More

Very modern building, some activity areas for younger kids, and price was good $5 for adult, $4 for seniors and kids free. Which way to go to begin was not very clear and the girl at the desk was to busy getting back to her facebook game to answer the question, "Which way do I go?" So, go left first!

Every year this museum expands and it is getting better and better. The logging portion is outstandingly done. The quality of the exhibits tells the story of the local area and its people.

I found this Museum to be much more than I had expected. It was an integration of Historic information about the area utilizing several mock ups of historic living spaces and businesses and excellent displays of the local fauna and flora. The stuffed animals were life like in everyday and most of the species past and present were well represented.... More
