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

So, I am a huge Goonies fan and already saw the houses. This place has the Jeep parked out front and many props from the movie. Its a small museum and you can do this fun filming thing all included in the $5 admission. I was disappointed they didn't have more in the gift shop, but it is the ONLY... More

For me, it wasn't worth the $6 entry. There is little to see. The chance to make your own film clips may interest some visitors. I never saw Goonies, and I got nothing out of the visit.

it was a wonderful and fun experience. brought back memories from scenes of The Goonies and it was so much fun to make a movie and do a scene from the movies .you can learn a lot from there and still have a great visit,. it is especially a must see for Goonies fans.

Just like other reviews, it's very small and simple: not much to it. I would have easily been able to skip it if it wasn't for my kids who adore Goonies. They got a kick out of the jail cell and pictures throughout the jail. Please be aware that is all that it offers. Data's costume is there as well... More

the gift shop was the highlight. Though Goonies scenes were a bit fun, and the display of all the other movies made in the area was illuminating, mostly, just an old jail, and unless you want to film yourself (which might be fun, but not for me), it is not really worth the cost of admission.

The museum was smaller than I expected, but still good fun. They say you have to pay to get in, but that's actually optional and they just ask that if you enjoy it that you chuck in a few dollars in the donation bin. This is a great place for Goonies fans and probably the only place to buy some... More
