“An outstanding museum.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

While small, this museum was a delight. Much of the area's history is thoughtfully displayed along with special displays during certain periods. Be sure to check their website to find out what is being displayed.

“Great museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Mainly focuses on trains, Native American history, and logging. Very well put together. Usually my 3 kids get antsy, but even they were pretty entertained by this museum. They loved the model railroad and the model houses. Something for everyone, and their shop has local artists and crafts to buy. $5 for each adult and free for children 12 and under... I think they had a senior discount, also.

“What a great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

It was windy and rainy at the coast this weekend but we didn't want to be cooped up in our hotel so we started looking for something to do...Luckily we found the Museum. Its not huge but has so much to offered and is a great place to visit.
Well worth a stop.

“Great local museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

The Columbia-Pacific Heritage Museum is a quality museum, concentrating on the local heritage of the lower Columbia area. You would not expect this in such a small community.
