The Museum of the Oregon Territory is located in Oregon City with an exceptional view of the Willamette Falls, especially from the third floor. Admission is free and it is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11:00 am to 4:00 PM.
The exhibits and displays are exceptional. The exhibits, including an incredible photo that covers several walls, draws you into the moment. First you find yourself looking at the overall group of people posing in the picture. Then you search the facial expressions of young and old, only then looking at the clothing for a clearer idea of that moment in time. The Kaegi Pharmacy is a fun and an incredible exhibit and you find yourself reading the titles on the bottles and wondering about medicine and cares of the 1800 and early 1900s.
The exhibits are well defined and cover many subject matters for the local history of Clackamas County. It is definitely a museum that you would like to spend more time, but even a glimpse of some of the exhibits give you a sense of the spirit of the area. A must see if you are in the area, it would be a great museum to visit again.
