It was raining so hard this weekend that we searched around for a few indoor activities and this was on the bucket list. There's really not very much to see inside this museum. Felt more like a tourist trap. This was a big waste of $5 dollars or in our case $10. Would seriously not recommend this place to friends,... More

So awesome that they put a museum in the jail from The Goonies, I'm not a huge Goonies fan but I like the movie ok and the museum is a lot of fun.

Guess we expected more after being charged the same price as the maritime museum. We were in and out in ten minutes.

Yes this is mostly a Goonies themed museum as the building was used in the opening scenes of the movie. However there are many other movies that were made in the local area that have various props on display (Short Circuit & Kindergarten Cop etc.). There are other displays that are interactive that are based around making films, good one... More

You get to film some fun projects like a car scene with a green screen, a "The Shining" face through holw in the door scenes, and some others. Quite small and kitschy. A bunch of Goonies memorabilia.

Although it is not a super long tour, if you are a fan of Goonies it is a really fun museum to experience. This museum also appeals greatly to filmmakers as there is a whole "shoot-your-own-scene" part to it at the end of the tour. My girlfriend and I played around with the film equipment but didn't really shoot anything... More

It doesn't take much time to tour this very small museum, but there is a film inside that shows all the various movies that have been made in the state or Oregon, and we found that to be very interesting. This old jail was featured in the movie "Goonies", so if you are a fan of that film, you will... More

I was super excited to go to the jailhouse from the Goonies opening scene..huge Goonies fan. The woman at the cashier was awesome, she had great energy. The museum was small and had couple of props from the different films. Bought an awesome shirt..took some fun pics..spent about 15/20 minutes inside. Check it out icy our a fan!

Very small but interesting info on the Goonies and other films filmed in Oregon. Loved the film set that you can make actual little movies on. So glad there is not an extra charge for this.
