Fun for kids

It is very small but fun to see the old jail. Unless you plan on making a "film" of yourselt it takes very little time to see.

This "museum" is a total scam and something designed for exploiting True Goonies!! Do not waste your money or time cuz this is a flat out tourist trap, meant to exploit the people who love the movie Goonies (the film was based in Astoria). I love Goonies a lot and we made the trek to visit it when it first... More

You can't visit Astoria and not come here! Included in your Admission is your set pass where you can make your own short film! It has tons of Goonies merchandise! Don't pass this gem up!!

This interactive museum allows you to make your own movies with a few sets and blue screens to provide you with a realistic background. You can then get a link for your videos. This place is where they filmed the first scene of the Goonies.

Because, why not? It's good hearted fun for the whole family. No walk down Goonies memory lane is complete without it. It's a quick stop with great photo ops and a chance to pick up a few souvenirs.

If you are a Goonies fan you must check out this little attraction. You can see the jail from the opening scene of the movie and they have some neat memorabilia from the movie. You can also purchase a Goonies t-shirt or souvenir from the shop. I would also highly recommend driving over to see the house where the Walshs'... More

This was a must on our trip because of my husband's love for the movie Goonies. It was cool to see the jail from the opening scene. And, the interactive videos that you could film and send to yourself were fun.

When I heard that the old county jail from the Goonies was a film museum, I wanted to go visit. My husband and I have both been big Goonies fans since we were kids. But finding out that Mama Fratelli's Jeep Cherokee sits parked in front of the museum sealed the deal - we HAD to go. Great photo ops... More

This quaint, small museum offers a small taste on the history of films and movies filmed in the Astoria and NW Oregon area. It was also the location of the opening jail break scene from the "Goonies" movie. This museum houses a lot of props from this and other movies filmed here. As a Goonies fan, I highly recommend making... More

Put yourself into a video on one of the sets in the Museum. LOL The old jail was used in a movie and is an interesting location for a museum.
