  • Very disappointed in this very small but obviously over funded "museum" which is more like a most unscientific attempt to indoctrinate the youth in anthropogenic climate change (glaringly overlooking ...  more »
  • We enjoyed this small museum. When I requested money for the parking meter (Eugene is the only place in Oregon that we had to pay for parking), the admissions woman offered a pass to the free lot. We ...  more »
  • Whether you're interested in wolves (until Dec 2017), geology, fossil, or early history of Oregon, this small but interesting museum will be a fun visit. There's also a replica of the Willamette meteo...  more »

  • Small and jam packed with information. We received free entrance because we have an OMSI membership. They have some very old local (Oregon) artifacts including a 9,000 year old sandal. This is more of a stop and read kinda museum with some interactive things for kids. If you walk straight through, you'll be done in 10 minutes or less.
  • Some of the exhibits were being updated. But still was a great museum. Loved the owl photo exhibit and the Mount St. Helens exhibit too. Easy to walk around in. Parking lot just to the west has spots for museum visitors, get a pass when you enter the museum.
  • It's pretty interactive. Has a good history of Oregon. I just don't agree with the evolutionary base the museum comes from.
  • Friendly and informative. Hands-on kid center, lots of displays, volunteers on hand to educate visitors.
  • Wow this museum is truly amazing. I learned so much about hunter gatherers and fishing. This museum would get five stars but you know that globe in the kids section... it just wasn't as shiny as I had hoped it would be. Despite that set back the staff there is just super.
