Visited during the summer. No crowds, no kids. Several very nice exhibits, including info on "Silicon Forest" (history of High Tech in Wash. Cty). On Oregon Trail, history of Wash Cty during WWII.

I thought we would be able to look into a telescope. The Hubble model was OK with some good info on the display piece around it. There... More
