Nice history museum of the area; very pretty drive
Sep 2021
Good museum, with interesting artifacts from various collections. Not super well organized, as in not a major overall theme, more a separate set of collections. Should be interesting for children 6 or 7+. If coming from Portland, recommend driving on the Washington state (highway 14) side one way and the Oregon side (I-84) the other.

Most excellent

First class and we’ll worth the $10.00 admission fee. The gorge itself is the star of the show. From geology to Native Americans, pioneers, up to the present day. Artifacts, machines, 2 short movies, gift shop, and very friendly and helpful workers/ volunteers. If you are new to the gorge and find yourself on the relatively untraveled north side, this is a don’t-miss experience.

Excellent source for Gorge history.

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.
