“A Little Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

It was neat to see the jail from the opening scenes of "The Goonies" but there was very little historical information about the building posted, and the scanners that run the film production sets were all not working when we were there. Thankfully, our tickets were free with our B&B room, so it wasn't a monetary loss.

“cute building”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012

The building is really cute as the old jail. The museum has a couple fun moments, but it's small. Don't expect too much, but it's quaint. A little pricey.

“Inexpensive fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

Great stop, especially if you're a Goonies fan! Inside the old jail house, you can read about movies filmed in Oregon and play with real movie set equipment.

“Fun for Goonies Fans-Get your picture taken in the jail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2011

We had fun touring through this museum which is actually the old Astoria Jail and where they filled the Goonies jail scenes. Fun, interactive film equipment and green screens to create your own Goonies Movie moments.

“Tiny”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2011

This museum is housed in the old county jail that is featured in Goonies. Most of the movie stuff they have in the museum is from Goonies, though they do have a few things from other films. The place is tiny and is not worth what you pay to get in.
