  • I learned a lot during just a three hour visit. The museum was small but packed a big punch. Especially good was the discussion of anthropology and archeology by a UO student.  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.
