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.

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.
