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

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.

wide collection of items. Art, Animals,Military,plus others. Neat old courthouse building. The 4 dollar fee seemed a little high to me, maybe because I had 6 kids with me. We were only there about 45 minutes. but we did have a good time.

Wonderful collection of birds and good dioramas for a smaller museum. A pioneer room, military room, Native American room. Victorian bedroom, a collection of Lincoln memorabilia donated by Oregon Senator Mark O. Hatfield, a stage that came over the Trask Toll Road, a Native American canoe - they have all sorts of things! Staff is very friendly and helpful. Great... More
