Great visit!

Spent 2 hours exploring different interesting exhibits - a variety of Native American and local history. I was particularly excited to see WWII subject matter, Information on Modoc war, and dated sandals found near Fort Rock. Worth checking out!

Good museum on a hot or cold day to visit!

We researched this museum on TA and found it got good reviews, so we came to visit. It was indeed very good with the history of the area, but what intrigued me the most personally was the story of local boy, Ernest Brace, who was the longest held civilian POW (8 years) and was in a cell near John McCain. I looked him up online and read more of his story. The old cars in the museum were pretty cool also. There were some displays with information on the WW2 balloon bombs, as well as displays of various local animals found in the area. We thought it was a very good museum to visit!

Was good and interesting. I wasn't captivated.

The manager took the time to show us around on his own accord, explained things and even opened up the vault and took us in! It was really nice to see his enthusiasm! For this I give this place a 4 instead of a three.

We enjoyed our time there. It was a limited experience due to Covid but still worthwhile. The Japanese balloon exhibit was our favorite.

Hidden Gem
Jun 2020 • Family
Hidden gem. We stumbled in looking for a break from the heat. Including the geological, archeological and anthropological history of the area, this museum presents local history in an interesting and engaging way. Don’t miss the fractured quilt or the enormous oil paining of the crucifixion hidden away in a side hallway! Definite steal for $5.

The museum reflects the community. It is not huge but it does a nice job of giving local history about people places and things from paleontology to WWII to the western movement of settlers.

Hidden gem in Southern Oregon!

This place completely exceeded my expectations! The quality and diversity of the exhibits is excellent, and the layout of the museum itself was so impressive. Todd, the Manager, took the time to meet with my son to answer questions about his school project and having that personal connection was fantastic. He went above and beyond and you can really get a sense for how much he cares about the museum. We will definitely be returning on our next trip through Klamath Falls.

Amazing variety of items. Knowledgeable staff.

I visited the museum after a tour of the town led by Todd, the director. It is chock full of all manner of history: human, natural history, even cool glow in the dark rocks. Their displays on the Modoc War were quite instructive. And I’d never heard of the Japanese sending balloons carrying explosives until I saw the display in the K Falls museum. I wish I’d had more time here!

I only had enough time for a brief visit to the museum but I wish I could have stayed longer! The exhibits are interesting and in-depth. There's also a wide variety of artifacts to see. It's a charming space and I definitely recommend a stop if you're visiting Klamath Falls!
