“Hubble Space Telescope”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

I thought this display would have had more interactive information than what was there. The space tools were very interesting. And then there was the memory match card game, I guess for kids. 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 were several video's attached in several locations. The price was reasonable but I just expected more.

“there really were native peoples in the Washington county area!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

This small gem of a museum highlights the history of the little known native peoples of the Washington county Tualatin River area-- the Alfalatis. Farmers still unearth artifacts such as spear points and grinding stones. The exhibits here are very well done and interesting. It's not worth a particular trip but IF you are in the area for other reasons take an hour to see this.
