Great local museum

Our family really enjoyed this county museum. It's not the Smithsonian, but it is not supposed to be. It has fantastic local history. A great thing to do for any age.

Travel back in time and get a feel for the area in the 40's 50's and 60's! Museum is organized, easy to follow and full of great stuff!

A good spot to drop by and view the history and developement of the Lincoln City area. Once five or more communities. Now one great city. This museum starts at the beginning and brings you up to present. The museum occupies a former firehall that then served as the city hall. It has now been repruposed as a museum.

Lived in the area in the '60's, then returned to the museum last year. Remembered the Pixie Kitchen, which is "reconstructed" in the museum. Lots of history, very well done!

We left a message on the answering machine making a reservation to go on the walking tour. When we arrived for tour they say they didn't get message and wouldn't let us join the group. But, they do have a few nice displays of japanese floats.

Small history museum I just happened to go by and stop in, it was small but it was interesting to see the history of the town.

Had a very great time very well set-up and very knowledgeable staff. What we thought was going to be a 20-minute trip into a museum ended up turning into a two-and-a-half-hour adventure Through Time. Sounds corny but my five year old was loving every minute of that museum. Then the Crown Jewel was the kids play area upstairs.

Nice little museum stuffed with local lore. Large collection of Japanese glass floats from local beaches. Interesting logging machine. Homesteaders verbal histories. Native American artifacts. Did you know that Sir Francis Drake probably landed here in Oregon and not in California as previously thought...?

It was raining and we decided to go in and explore, and it was free! Was a delightful time we had looking at all the exhibits. They even offer a small reference guide that identifies items in the display cabinets. The upstairs level has displays and scenes depicting favorite tourist resorts of days past. Well used children's area. We probably... More
