If you are not a Goonies fan or Kindergarten cop it is not worth a stop. Could have enjoyed making our own little movie but the place is very small and there just wasn't room for us.

We aren't particularly knowledgeable about movies but still enjoyed this museum. There are 3 opportunities to make your own movie clip and have it emailed to you. Go for it - great fun.

I'm a product of the 80's so I brought my children and took them on a Goonies tour we hunted down all of the film spots from the movie and it was a blast. The folks that work at the museum really have fun helping everyone share this film with the kids.... My kids loved going into the Jail sells... More

We found the jail from the movie The Goonies, and also the Fratelli's old Jeep. The jailhouse has been turned into the Oregon Film Museum, and is worth the stop!

I think you have to be a real Goonies buff to appreciate this site. Was surprised at how many movies have been filmed in Oregon.

If you don't know what a Goonie is then it's not worth it. ..but if you do its a great quick stop! We took a few pictures and bought the infamous pirate coin which we then took to canon beach ..The price is not bad. The only problem we had was trying to figure out how to use the "movie... More

All of us from grandkids (age 6 to 12) to grandparents enjoyed coming to the museum. In fact before we left home we watched a couple movies (Goonies/Kindergarten Cop). While we were in Astoria we did a tour of places/houses used in the movies. Found the house from Short Circuit. Fun, fun, fun!!

We got free tickets for this by staying at the Astoria Riverwalk Inn, otherwise we would not have gone, and to be honest, I wouldn't have paid to go in. Should you be a Goonies fan, or want to know about films made in Oregon, or have a small movie cut made of you sitting in a car, then do... More

If you haven't seen "Goonies", filmed in Astoria, don't bother going. If a film has even one scene set in Oregon, it is promoted.

This old jail is really tiny, and it is just too small to do justice to an exploration of film making in Oregon. You get a very short video of a series of clips from many of the movies made here, but there is very little exploration of the individual movies and what went into making them. Too much of... More
