The best thing I can say about the museum is there is no admission charge. It is free but a small donation would be appropriate. It is very limited but still interesting enough to spend 30 minutes ir less.

Our family enjoys our visits to the museum. There are the year round attractions which showcase our great city. There are also rotating displays.

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.
