About
The Baldwin Hotel Museum is open during the summer months, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. The building has changed very little since it opened in 1906. All four floors of the former hotel feature rooms filled with artifacts of Klamath history. Examples include a kitchen, laundry room, children's room, music, parlor, cafeteria, doctors's office, lawyer's office, school room and much more. There is no elevator, and so the building presents a number of barriers to people with impaired mobility.

I was very interested in visiting this museum. We got to town after 3pm hoping to take in as much as we could knowing they closed at 4pm. Parking is not clearly marked and there was road construction going on right in front of the building, so we had to find a place to turn around so we could go back. Nowhere did we see anything about tour times, so we unknowingly missed the last tour of the day. The desk staff was extremely rude and not at all helpful. We spent a few minutes looking around the main floor when the street construction crew came in and asked for a tour. She eagerly invited them for a walk through. She told the other staff member to lock the door when we left without addressing us at all while she took the road crew upstairs. So rude.

What we did see of the museum (main floor only) was very interesting, though.

We took the two hour tour and Melinda was our guide. She was a delight. So much knowledge and love of the place and all its wonderful stories. Every one of the four floors has a different feel and a different set of wonders. If you can do only one museum stop in Klamath, make this the one.

What an amazing tour, back in time!
My grandfather was a pioneer of Klamath Falls, in the early 1900’s. The tour brought back many memories of stories told to me by my father.
I highly recommend this museum, as well as, the Klamath Historical Museum. The displays are amazing!

This place is amazing. We were shown around by Melinda, a charming woman who knows seemingly everything about the hotel and Klamath Falls history. The building has been kept in its early 1900s condition, and is fascinating architecturally. There are four floors, each one a marvel. Beyond the architecture, there are rooms full of antiques from the era that are displayed beautifully--and simply, not under plexiglass and such. Best part of our trip to KF. Highly recommended.

The best history of the Klamath falls area. If you enjoy learning and seeing history this is best. This museum is living history very few items are behind glass. Ask for Zeke our tour guide, he is young his family has history in the area. Great to see young Americans learning and showing the history of their area. Best hands down museum.

It was a "flashlight" tour right before Halloween 2022. It was so much fun and so interesting! I have been through the Museum a couple of times before and find it fascinating....but the flashlight tour was over the top in interest.

If you enjoy history, and like to walk through it, The Baldwin is the bomb! (That's a good thing, by the way.)

I adore this place. I've been through it twice and like to bring friends here. It is such a fun step back in time. All authentic ambience with great docents. Full of wonderful antiques, you really get a sense of what life was like 140 or so years ago. If you've ever fantasized about exploring an old house, this is just like that. Don't miss it!

A friend and I recently visited the Baldwin Hotel Museum, and could not have been more surprised! We paid $5 for a 30 minute tour, and our wonderful guides ended-up providing a fascinating 2 hour tour of many rooms covering 4 floors in this former hotel that is beautifully preserved as a museum. There are many stairs, so persons with mobility issues, such as myself, would find it challenging. I managed easily with a cane. I could have spent much more time here because it's so interesting. Highly recommended1

The people are so great and know alot of the history of the Klamath Falls area and about the items in the museum. I could spend hours and hours there and still not see everything.

At one time Klamath Falls was the place to be and the Baldwin hotel was a hardware store. After a fire that destroyed the area hotel, Mr Baldwin turned his store into a great hotel.. Later it became a rooming house for men who were alone and down on their luck. The place became run down and was closed. Now it is being renovated by a group of volunteers and while they still have much to do,what has been accomplished is amazing! We had a wonderful, personable woman take us around and she gave us so much information. She was enthusiastic and positive and obviously loved what she had committed herself to-preserving the history of the area. The hotel's history is extremely interesting and I would recommend visiting. Tours are only on certain days so check before going...it is a treasure from the past!
