Another review suggested the the museum was a good rainy day activity. It was. A lot of history within the three floors. Used the audio set but was a little disappointed it didn't give more information. Lot of reading with the displays so didn't read every word but enough to appreciate the history. Takes you from early native American settlements... More

Me and my daughter went to this museum. My daughter got sad looking at the stuffed animals up stairs. Although we liked looking at the butterflies, birds nests, and bird eggs. I liked looking at the building as it was the court at one point.

We originally went to this museum to find a geocache. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that the entrance fee is waived for geocachers. For a small town museum, this one has a lot of interesting exhibits and is worth a tour.

This is a first-rate museum, staffed by incredibly friendly and helpful volunteers. Don't miss the amazing collection of stuffed birds and animals upstairs. A long-time former curator of this museum was a gifted taxidermist!

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.
