  • We went to this place because we don't get out much and wanted to learn a bit about the history of the Oregon Trail and the whole lewis and clark thing. The price was not really worth the value of the experience, allot of reading instead of story telling by the people dressed up in period garb. There was a demonstration of a spinning wheel for creating textiles also a small half hour show that had a voice over of journal and diary excerpts from people that made the 2,000 mile journey. They had tablets that were inoperable and we felt the total experience was lacking. More interactivity and better edutainment would certainly be needed to push this past 2 stars.
  • The interpretive center is great- historically accurate and relevant, they include actual artifacts and photographs, great illustrations, and tie in the local history so well- the movie is kind of cheesy but the hologram thing was super cool. Very well organized, well cared for, thorough, and lots of interactive features. Well done!
  • Oregon history well done. Lots of free parking. Tranquil space. Clean bathrooms. Water fountains. Handicap accessible. Very family friendly.
  • A great historical place to visit! It really gives you the sense of what it was like for the first Oregonians. Staff is very friendly.
  • Heritage Days were amazing. Thank you for this wonderful event
