This is not the interpretive center at the base of the bridge -- this is a small,unassuming building located in "old town". Turn north at Ray's Food Place and go toward the boat ramp to find it.

This museum covers much of the early history of Waldport, including logging, fishing and farming. Waldport in the early years was a bustling little town! The exhibits are clean and well marked.

I enjoyed my visit here. Note that hours are limited,and sometimes they change. Contact the museum ahead of time to make sure it's open. If there is a festival in town (such as Beachcombers Days) it most likely will be open longer hours.

We had no idea what this museum was about so were pleasantly surprised to find a great exhibit about the building of the bridges that finally connected all of the pieces of the Oregon Coast Highway in the 1930s. We've driven over those bridges for 25 years, admiring their shapes and Art Deco design, but never knew much about them. This museum is worth a stop, and bring your binoculars to look at birds on the bay.

This local Heritage Museum in Waldport offers an interesting insight into the history of this small community which at one time in the early 1900's had two canneries and robust logging and farming activity. It is open only for a few hours Wed-Fri 10-4 and on weekends but a fun place to visit for both children and adults interested in how the early inhabitants lived.

It's only open noon-4 on Wed-Fri & 10-4 on Sat & Sun, but worth a short stop for kids to see how folks lived before wifi, or if you'd you'd like to know about the founder of the town and it's history. There is also info on the Alsi (means peaceful) native American Indians and an interesting story about the building itself, #1381 built by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The tour is self-guided, and the volunteer went back to his office after I signed-in. I was surprised to be the only one there on a Friday afternoon before Labor Day.

Exhibits artifacts & include info on Mr. Ruble the founder, logging, blacksmithing, a sewing room, clothing, and more. No fee, but donations are welcome.

Must-do: A stop a few blocks away at the Alsea Bay Bridge Interpretive (and visitor) Center for gr8 clean restrooms, lots of area visitor info & activities from helpful volunteers including Ranger programs, info on crabbing and clamming, maps, movie and info on the building of Oregon coastal bridges & more. Go West at the (only) traffic light on Hwy 101 until you dead end at the bridge/center.
It's an unexpected gem in such a small town.
