Excellent source for Gorge history.
Mar 2021
Nice place to learn the history of Columbia Gorge. Lady at the front desk was courteous. Good option to consider especially if it is raining outside. Had the theater experience after 1 year during pandemic !!

Lots of interesting machinery
Oct 2020
If you're a guy, or a mechanically-minded female -- not my wife -- you'll love this place. Gear from pioneer days -- full size and, in some cases, operational. Tons of period pix. Interesting design. $10 at the door. Good cause.

Interesting and Educational
Sep 2020
The tour started with a movie on the history and a docent's explanation of the operation of an old Columbia River fishing Wheel. There is a variety of exhibits including Native American, Asian, and the world's largest collection of rosaries. I noticed in the Asian section that a statue mislabeled Buddha was actually Hotei, the god of good luck and happiness. All in all, a nice place to stop over

This was a fun stop between waterfalls. Perfect for my preschoolers and easy to see the whole thing in a short time.

Great Mix of History, Logging and Indian art effects,
Apr 2019
I took a antique car club touring group to the Interpretive center. We had to pry people away after about 2 hours. I love the logging equipment inside and outside, and the Columbia River Indian displays and early settler replica were great. The tree trunk outside 20 feet in diameter.

Cool place!
Oct 2019
The group we were with had the welcome eight here. Lots of cool artifacts located throughout the property along with how people lived for many years. It is just a walk down the entrance road form our hotel, the Skamania Lodge.

Went for a company event and left with knowledge of the Gorge
Oct 2019
We had a company event at the center after hours which was well managed. The center really does a great job of capturing the area and the history that has taken place. From the commercial fishing, native american's and the development it really was a pleasant surprise. I would return to visit on my own

Small, interesting, well done
Sep 2019
The drive here was lovely, the center was interesting and we learned some stuff. Outside is a bit of a jumble of old farm and logging equipment, but the center itself is well done and quite modern.

Excellent!
Sep 2019
What a fabulous museum! They have such diversity throughout the building. In one section, they have the world's largest collection of rosaries - over 4,000 - all from one man's collection. They are in the Guinness Book for that. Lots of beads too and Tiffany, Chinese/Japanese items, historic items from the area and so much more. A worthwhile stop.
