The history of the Pass

Interesting history we stopped in to ask about rental homes and ended-up walking through the museum, the staff was more than friendly and well informed.

I cannot remember the name of the lady here who so kindly helped me to figure out the bus schedule to go to somewhere where I could find new hiking boots.

This was an interesting hodge-podge of local historical interests. It is a low-budget assemblage of fire tower and lodge models, snow ski collection from perhaps the last 100 years, some wildlife exhibits, and other things. I liked it, but I didn't have much time to take it all in. Don't expect anything world class; it is a small-town museum.

A nice place to spend an hour and learn about the history and geography of the area, but not a destination in its own right.

We went to the cultural center to get information about hikes to take and things to do. They were very helpful and gave us great ideas on what to do for the two days there. It was well worth our time.

If you'd like a physical feel of the historic Government Camp, a visit to this museum is a must. It is upstairs from the visitors center, which has a helpful staff and brochures and maps for lodging and activities in the Mt. Hood area.
