Came here on a field trip in 7th grade and were wowed with the ostrich egg next to the hummingbird egg. Fast forward a lot of years and you've got a curator, who knows how to present pioneer history in a contemporary manner. Worth an hour with or without kids.

Wow. Stopped here on day last summer and loved this little museum. Great exhibits. Learned quite a bit. This is a great one hour detour and well worth the few dollars and time. Will stop again!

This museum in wonderful!! With 35,000 items and 10,000 photographs, this museum preserved many artifacts from the north oregon coast region. The main level has a pioneer cabin room and barn, military room (with artifacts from civil war, WWI, and WWII), Native American room, pioneer photographs, and temporary exhibitions.

Insiders know this museum's worth. For some of us, we went there as kids, and come back with our grandkids. Where else would you see Spanish Galleon wax from the late 1600's, and arrowheads made out of plates that washed up from the wreck? The top floor has the beautiful dioramas, and animals that some of us can only see... More

This museum was so worthwhile! Helpful volunteer to tell about the museum as well as other places to see in region. (Kilchis Park). We spent almost 2 hours on a sunny day enjoying varied collections ... birds, shells, machinery, toys, Lincoln, pioneer life and First Nations. A few dollars for entrance fee felt worthwhile!!

We liked the great exhibits, from pictures, the interactive displays, recreation of pioneer living as well as the cheese making vats. The docent was knowledgeable and very helpful on area things.

Located in the center of town and housed in the former town hall (I think), it is crammed full of interesting history of the former and later settlers of the area. There is even an art gallery in the exhibit, which is available to purchase for very reasonable prices. Worth while.

This museum is much better organized than many local history museums. there are the usual exhibits of "pioneer life" with the blacksmith shop , stable and kitchen exhibit, but they are attractive. Don't miss the logging and fire watch exhibit in the basement! There is a fine collection of local Native American artifacts and quite an extensive taxidermy and egg... More
