I'm not really a museum person, but this place is super nice. They have amazing exhibits with little captions and wall posters for things. They have a military/Navy room, a lot of things from World War II. They have manikins dressed in uniforms, they have old guns in a display case as well as some various different items like a...

We were traveling with my 2 year old son and lucked out with the current (until Nov 2015) exhibit of children at play. They had several children's rugs with all different toys that kids can play with. This was the perfect distraction while we took turns going through the museum. They have lots of cool and interesting things in this... More

I love this museum. It has lots of relics and fossil, replicas of homes and samples of clothing oregon pioneer wore. I love history and seeing historical objects up close. It is not pricey. If you have every been to the the Old Cowtown Museum in Kansas, this is a scaled down version. Worth the stop.

This small museum is wonderful. Items are cataloged so you can see what each thing is. The staff is very friendly. There is an entire room of animals and another entire room of Abraham Lincoln ....a collection that was once owned by Mark Hatfield. There is a military room, and right now, the display is on toys of the past.... More

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. The lower level has the transportation from the past, a native... More

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.
