Like the upstairs historical Springfield items. Not to fussed about the Art show too many posters to read and not enough hands/eyes on in the gallery. Great Director and fun to talk with and had great kbowledge.

First floor exhibit was on schooling in early days of Springfield. Upstairs was a number of artifacts and an excellent video on the history of Springfield.

Jack from Sweety's Frozen Yogurt across the street from the museum is what we noticed first. He has a full Simpsons display outside his store. He is friendly and enthusiastic. He sent us over to the museum. Great guy! Go to Sweety's!

What do you expect in Springfield, OR? People put lots of love and energy into this place. And the Simpsons-Sofa is a real must-see!

This is a small museum located downtown Springfield. I especially enjoy that the venue changes frequently. Volunteers provide enthusiastic conversation and exhibits are always interesting. The Simpson display makes a camera a must! Free but donations appreciated.

This museum is not very big but has interesting collections and displays. It is located in a fine old brick building downtown and is worth a look.

This is so cute. They have the Simpson couch to have your picture with the Simpsons. They claim to be the real Springfield and I believe them. There is a nice story about the history of the town. Everyone was very friendly. Nice stop on a Saturday when we needed something to do as we passed through town.

Since I last reviewed(5 months ago), Springfield's Museum, I've been back several times to see their constantly changing exhibits. I've seen shows devoted to children's art, historic photo equipment and pictures, the history of brewing in the Springfield area, and more. I definitely encourage folks to spend an hour in this "Admission Free" museum. Just don't believe Trip Advisors suggestion... More
