  • A low-key and somewhat dated (pun intended) venue, interesting and worth the stop, even if only once. For the museum, conveying the historical information is primary goal (not entertainment) and comes by way of indoor exhibits (some of them activity-based for kids), many placards, a modest 25-minute mixed-media movie and some points of interest in the surrounding grounds. Some outdoor event stages apparently provide concerts, depending on the sason. If you are not already familiar with the Oregon Trail history, this museum will help put you in better touch with the legacy of the area.
  • It is very informative. The exibits are good and the price is right. I'm glad I went.
  • Lots of interaction and places to learn and explore. My kids, ages 10 and 4 enjoyed the exhibits and learning. Will definitely be back again!
  • Fun, rainy day activity. The kids liked dipping candles and trying on the pioneer clothes.
  • A very fun place with some interaction. Very well done learning adventure.
