  • The Oregon Trail Center was fantastic! I felt like I stepped back in time. You must have lunch in a covered wagon. Iced tea is served in adorable Ball glasses. When will you get the chance to do that ...  more »

  • Wonderful display of railroad relics and pioneer artifacts. It was very interesting. I love hearing about the pioneers and seeing what they wore and how they lived.

  • I'm a city guy from Los Angeles, and my city girlfriend didn't expect much.. but he absolutely had a blast and the tour was great and informative. . Stay at the nice motel 6 right across the street then go too the trail center is an awesome vacation
  • My family all thought this was one of the most enjoyable museums we've been to in a while. As the last stop before heading over the mountains this museum stands over the actual Oregon Trail and campground. They carefully excavated during the building process and then used the actual trail as the floor inside museum. The museum guides are dressed in period clothing as they walk you through the decisions and sacrifices that one had to make as they set out in hopes of free land in west.
  • We really enjoyed the center and we learneda lot -very interesting. It may have been a little over priced - that's why the 4-star rating.
  • Wonderful Oregon Trail museum. Nice auditorium with great stage presentations throughout the year.
  • Nicely curated and informative museum about the early pioneers that passed through there. Definitely recommend if you are in the area.
