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

This museum has been in the old Tillamook courthouse since the 1930s. It has exhibits about the native American tribes in the area, early settlers, a horse tack workshop, and classic transportation from horse buggies, old cars and a fire engine. There are rotating exhibits usually by local artists and the top floor has a natural history exhibit with taxidermy... More

Great displays, lots of information plus they developed a video for those who could not handle the stairs for the upper floor and basement. Te volunteer who assisted us was very knowledgable and personable.

If you have any interest in museums, you shouldn't skip this one. It isn't your typical community historical society. It is a full fledged respectable museum. It covers the history of the region and has plenty of artifacts to showcase. Plan an 90 minutes for a thorough walk thru.

A surprise of all that was inside this small place. The downstairs was larger than the main floor. Easy to navigate and the entry fee was very reasonable.

A surprisingly first class museum with a huge collection (only a fraction on display). A wide variety of artifacts, plentiful and interesting historical narrations, an excellent collection of stuffed birds and mammals.

Lots of great local history! Cool life size displays of workshops, living rooms and a tree stump that a man actually made into his home! Very neat room completely dedicated to three dimensional displays, made of photographs, of an Oregon town that disappeared into the ocean! Old buggies and cars, as well as local wildlife and war memorabilia from every... More
