One of the best museums in Oregon! Everything from old cars, old logging times to different types of animals.

“add a little history”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

wide collection of items. Art, Animals,Military,plus others. Neat old courthouse building. The 4 dollar fee seemed a little high to me, maybe because I had 6 kids with me. We were only there about 45 minutes. but we did have a good time.

“Their motto is "where history lives"”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

Wonderful collection of birds and good dioramas for a smaller museum. A pioneer room, military room, Native American room. Victorian bedroom, a collection of Lincoln memorabilia donated by Oregon Senator Mark O. Hatfield, a stage that came over the Trask Toll Road, a Native American canoe - they have all sorts of things! Staff is very friendly and helpful. Great genealogy department, too. They also manage Kilchis Point, an early Indian settlement that is on Tillamook Bay. All of it worth your time!

“Great local museum, reasonal admission.”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

This museum has been in the old Tillamook courthouse since the 1930s. It has exhibits about the native American tribes in the area, early settlers, a horse tack workshop, and classic transportation from horse buggies, old cars and a fire engine. There are rotating exhibits usually by local artists and the top floor has a natural history exhibit with taxidermy models of birds, mammals, and fish that is really complete. The admission was around $3.00 and the volunteer staff are very helpful.
