Rotating exhibits and an opportunity to learn about Gresham's past. I particularly like the "What is it" display - engages everyone in the group trying to figure out what these (formerly) common items are.

I was in the area the other day and had some time to kill after lunch and decided to check this place out. For a small museum it has many interesting things. I will be taking my wife back next time.

The museum is in the pretty old Gresham library building. It's tiny, but fun to walk through, and I learned new things. I appreciated that they did not censor Gresham's history, but presented the bad alongside the good.

Unless you are from here, I don't think it would thrill a visitor. It's about the history of this area. It's close to the river, and the train. NOt all people are into that kind of thing.
