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.

This museum really has a fabulous concept, but is limited by the space. The museum is located in the old county jailhouse, the one shown in the Goonies film. The price is a bit steep for the size and scope of the museum, but it still a great idea. There is film equipment there, so that you can film scenes... More

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
