Amazing local museum. Many artifacts unique to this location. They have a really good "town" display. I didnt inquire but it seems there's also some historical records available to consult. One very great feature is a boxcar that has been converted to a movie theater....More

Visited the little museum in downtown Brownsville Oregon. Part of it set up in train cars. If you have a couple of hours visit this little jewel of a museum, plenty of interesting history to look and read about in this quaint little town.
