We stopped in at the visitor center when we went to the farmers market on Sunday - our 1st day in town. Dennis was amazing! He helped us figure out hikes to take, wineries for tastings and amazing restaurants. We loved his enthusiasm and his ability to understand what we were looking for. I wish we had this kind of service everywhere we traveled!

Right on Highway 101 in Lincoln City. The staff was friendly and very informative. A great selection of road maps and pamphlets. Ge the Mile by Mile Guide for the Oregon Coast. Well worth the stop.

The Lincoln City Cultural Center has just recently come of age. After years of semi-surviving, the Center has a new director who seems to be doing everything right. They now have special, creative (make and take) classes for children, musical performances, adult classes (including sculpture, life drawing, zumba) and some excellent art exhibits. Plus, the gift store in the Center has amazing deals--we bought some hand-painted wine glasses there at a super price. When planning a visit to Lincoln City, check out their web site to find out what's going on (http://www.lincolncity-culturalcenter.org/joomla-overview). There is always something to see, plus it's a good place to get information about the local area and events elsewhere in town. Going to be around on Sunday? Try out the farmer's market for treats, veggies, crafts, even meat; it's an event where everybody is smiling.

As the Native American is the biggest presence in the area with their casino, I would have liked to see more exhibits featuring their talents and history.

When you walk in the first thing that greets you is the strong smell of mold but no greeter at that entrance. To the left is an art display which this month featured various paintings, artwork about birds. Very disturbing to me and a couple of others was a taxidermied owl with wings spread in flight.

The very bright spot however in this visit was the woman behind the counter at the gift shop/information center. She was a true delight who really loved where she worked and graciously showed us around the limited area. The items for sale are made by the locals and the murals were interesting but it did not speak to me. There are many events featuring music and art from other countries so go to them rather than viewing the building itself.

Hi there -- I know that it's been a while since you visited the Lincoln City Cultural Center, but I just saw this and thought I would update you, and the rest of the TripAdvisor family, about what's going on now at the LCCC. First, the smell. On April 6, just a few days before your visit, a fire sprinkler system failure brought 4-8 inches of water throughout our 4,000-square-foot basement. We were lucky that this flood occurred during business hours, and that we were able to get the water main shut off at the street before more damage was done. Still, it involved thousands of gallons permeating the ground before coming into the building, and the smell of wet earth was keen on the day of your visit, certainly. Thanks to a lot of hard work by our contractors and landlord, and the dry summer, the basement is back to normal. Second, the stuffed owl in the Chessman Gallery. I'm sorry that the specimen disturbed you, that was certainly not our intention. It belongs to a local member of the Audubon Society, a photographer whose work was displayed in the temporary bird art show. It had been made from the body of an owl that was already deceased, with the proper permits from U.S. Fish and Wildlife. Many of us thought it was beautiful, and offered us a chance to see what such a bird really looked like, up close. But I can see how you might have felt differently, and I'm sorry. Third, the lack of Native American cultural exhibits. I, too, would love to see more cultural displays from the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians, the tribes that operate our local casino. There is a cultural center and repository at the tribes' headquarters, in the town of Siletz (about 45 minutes from Lincoln City). You can learn more about their history and heritage on their website, http://www.ctsi.nsn.us/chinook-indian-tribe-siletz-heritage/. And last, thank you for the feedback on our visitors' center. We work hard to provide personal service and information to our visitors, and it's great to hear that you enjoyed your interaction. Please come back and see us. We look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you, Niki Price Executive Director

Received a warm welcome to the Cultural Center Gift Shop upon recommendation by the North Lincoln County Historical Museum. A lovely and surprising collection of gifts to remember our stay in this beautiful place. Many of the gifts are made in-house as there is (at least) a pottery studio and a fiber arts work area full of looms. And all in a lovingly-restored school house. The Gift Shop employees (I believe the lead was named Jan) were kind, smart, and made us feel welcome. Such nice people! Art Studios, Gift Shop, and a great Visitor Center with local information that we will use for future trips. Looking forward to visiting again when we are next in the area.

No Farmers Market until May so they had some antique dealers there for annual antique week so we had that to check out along with the Art work and crafts that are in some other rooms. They were to have music later.
Also in Town the Fireman and the help from the boy Scouts had a Great Ham dinner going at a school.
With donations every year at this time they said. Kept food and drinks coming even dessert from great kids and firemen and a couple young girls.

Was pleasantly surprised when we walked in all the information and stuff they had available in this building. For us not much of an indoor farmer's market as what we are use to. There were vendor's with their goods of all kinds the prices are okay. They have little gift shops in here a little art gallery and so forth. Even a dance studio. We will be going to back to spend some more time in here to see what all they offer and just to look around.

We stopped by as we had driven by this center many times. The best part of the stop was the nice ladies inside gift shop. The 1st lady was very helpful trying to find new or different things we hadn't seen in the area. We enjoyed seeing the art display. The gift shop was a true find with good variety of hand made items and reasonable pricing

LCCC always has something going on. Really good art and music. Enlightenment in a beach town where you can't buy paté. Very welcoming also.
