We went on senior day, so thought we would take in the museum. We have lived in this town for 30 years and never went. My goodness, what a wonderful experience. The displays were wonderful, interesting, interactive for families, new discoveries for children, and generally very educational. We have recommended it to several of our friends

This museum's exhibits belie its small size. They provide outstanding temporary exhibits, plus a nice sampling of art from pre-history to the present. Their Native American art/basketry display rivals that of much larger museums. Many free lectures associated with the various exhibits. Part of nearby Willamette University, it is heavily used as a "teaching museum."

Although it is a small museum, the visiting "Near East" exhibit was amazing. The artifacts were so beautiful and the historic descriptions fascinating. We were so fortunate to have the opportunity to view this spectacular exhibit. Allow a minimum of an hour for your visit.

I'm not a fan of modern art. This place is full of it. They had a couple of exhibits of old pottery from the near east which was minimally interesting. There was an exhibit of ancient coins which was interesting. Otherwise, it was a snoozer.
