“Fun for families”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Nice museum with easy freeway access. Good local history with interactive exhibits for kids. Fairly new to area so I learned about local history. Fun afternoon at a reasonable price. Might be a good choice for kids on a rainy afternoon.

“A wonderful surprise!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Finding ouselves in Roseburg on a cold and drizzly day, we made our way to this museum, where we spent several hours. It's a very nice, modern building with excellent exhibit space. The exhibits are well presented and attractively dispalyed, and there is a nice variety. Exhibit descriptions told us what we wanted to know in a way that was easy to understand. We learned a lot about the history of this area, and about the natural world, all in a way that was fun and interesting. We are museum buffs, and know a good museum when we see one!

“Very interesting museum with local history, artifacts, & mammath bones”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of this county museum. It features local history exhibits, information about the Oregon Trail, including a covered wagon display with items pioneers would have packed, and has locally discovered mammoth and mastodon bones, and an area explaining about animals, birds, and repltiles native to the area.
