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

Small museum, but it complete museum. You have to go, the fee is small for the great items, like olds cars.

If you are absolutely stuck in Tillamook and would like to waste a few hours then visit. If you are looking to visit a place that is going to make the best use of your time, skip this so called museum.

The exhibits change about 4 times a year and they are well done. If you're looking for Tillamook history, talk to Ruby - she's a human computer and very nice lady.

This is a good small town museum. It has the same problem that many small museums have in that it seems as though there is not enough space! Even with three floors, many of the exhibits are a bit cramped. There is something for everyone here. The top floor is a natural history section with stuffed critters of all shapes... More

One of the best museums in Oregon! Everything from old cars, old logging times to different types of animals.
