Baldwin Hotel Museum

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.

Fun and intriguing, my favorite museum!
Aug 2020
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!

One of our favorite museums ever!!
Aug 2020
My favorite part of visiting this museum was finding out that "Nancy", our tour guide was the widow of the man I had been so intrigued by after reading about him the day before at the Klamath Falls County Museum!! She had asked us what we had done so far during our visit to K Falls, and I told her we'd been to the County Museum the day before, and she said, "Oh, you must have seen my husband's display!" She then said his name and I looked at her, then at her name, and almost shouted, "You're his Nancy!" The whole story came together as she told us more about his story, his life, and their long marriage. We got a much longer tour than we signed up for, and because she took us to all the four floors of the hotel, we gave them more money in their jar as we were leaving. This hotel museum will always be one of our favorites because of her and the info she shared with us about the history of the hotel. It was truly a wonderful museum tour!!

This is a true gem!

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.

Unique historic experience
Jul 2020 • Couples
To see an old wooden hotel as it was in the 1800’s is an amazing experience! Each room of the four story hotel was thoughtfully decorated in historic themes!
Don’t miss it! It’s a TRUE GEM. A time capsule.
The volunteers are dedicated and very interesting.

A wonderful museum - a "must-see" in Klamath Falls!
Jun 2020
This hotel/museum 2 hour tour will forever be one of our favorite museum tours ever. Linda and Melinda, the docents/tour guides, could answer all of our questions. Their love for this old hotel made us love it too. There is a great mix of pieces original to the museum and donated pieces that depict the life and times of the hotel's heyday. To us, this is a "can't miss" when visiting Klamath Falls.

The hotel tells the story of a families vision for a town being developed back in the early 1900's as pioneers began to settle out west. The proprietor of the hardware store turned it into a hotel in 1907 to meet the railroad, which eventually arrived in 1909, the railroad did not come to this part of the town, instead located to the southern part of the town.
There are displays of the times and changes that occur in the people who lived in the hotel until it closed in 1977.

Travel back to the 1890s

A nineteenth century hotel repurposed with period relics to show you you what it was like to live during those times. For $8 you can get a two hour guided tour of the hotel and it’s contents. Most interesting. If you are in the area a must see.

Unique view of local history
Aug 2019 • Couples
We participated in a 1-hour tour of the hotel. The tour guide was extremely kind and informative. The hotel provides an affordable and different perspective of local history. They also offer local students an opportunity to serve as tour guide interns. Many reasons to make this a quick stop during your trip to Klamath Falls.
