If you're in Astoria because you're a Goonies fan make sure and stop at the Oregon Film Museum. Quite a bit of Goonies memorabilia and this is the actual spot where the jail scene was filmed. They also have a couple of 'hot sets' where you can try your hand at filming a scene. A fun place to find out... More

Small display, mostly "Goonies" movie stuff. Astoria has hosted many more movies. Within walking distance on the Flavel Museum and Lower Columbia Bowl (Goonies movie).

This was a very small museum, it had some Goonie memorabilia which was cool to see. You could film a mini movie but it wasn't working when we went so we got to go for free. Wasn't much to see other than the Goonies stuff, so if you came to see that, then this is a must see.

The best word to describe this museum is "adorable." If you are a huge Goonies fan - I am - then it's worth the trip just to take a picture outside the jailhouse used in the movie. Other than that, the museum has small little items from random movies that were filmed in Oregon, but again, primarily Goonies items. Is... More

Did not go inside this museum, so I can't tell you anything about the displays inside. However, if you are a Goonies fan...this is the building used in the opening of the movie - so it makes a great little photo op!!

If you love the Goonies this is a great stop for you. Parts of the movie were actually filmed at this location. And the museum itself is a cute attraction. You can make scenes in your own movie, they've got a Goonies store and other neat trivia hidden around the building. It's definitely not a long stop. But it was... More

We went to the Oregon Film Museum, which is a museum highlighting movies made in Oregon. The museum is in the Old Clatsop County Jail. The building is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

It was so fun to see the jail that was in the beginning of the movie. Inside you can make your own mini movies and see all the goodies that were in the attic in the movie. You can even walk into the cells

I have never given a negative review like this before, but our visit here was a big disappointment. I will admit that I should have researched the reviews before we went, but we kind of got caught up in "Goonies Fever" and stopped on impulse. We should have just taken a picture from outside and moved on. We expected a... More

You could spend no more than an hour in this tiny little museum, but it's an hour well spent, especially if you're into the Goonies and movies in general. The ORV is parked out front so you can check out the matzo ball sized bullet holes without paying to get in, if you felt so inclined. But I'm glad I... More
