The museum is closing for good in April. The gift shop is already closed. It's a tiny museum -- only two rooms. Not worth $6.

There are many talented craftspeople in Oregon and the Northwest. We expected to see works in a variety of materials on display. In fact, there appears to be no permanent collection, and the current exhibit was small and disappointing.

Wonderful special exhibitions. Mostly high quality Oregon crafts- pottery, glass, baskets, and weavings. Good quality and value in the shop as well.
