  • Since my GGG Grandparents stopped here when they arrived in 1850, this place always brings tears to my eyes. It is soooo well presented. If you are a northwest history buff, or not, it really is a mus...  more »

  • Thanks place was a lot of fun. Went on my 10yr old daughter field trip. Fun to take your kids. It's only a couple hours long. It's partially outside, so if it's cold outside dress appropriately.
  • A nice museum to visit that has a focus on the end of the Oregon trail, as the name would indicate. My wife and I visited a museum at the beginning of the trail so it was a nice bookend to visit this one. The exhibits give a nice general overview of the trail and information on some local history but there wasn't a lot of depth. It's kind of a small museum. Granted, we visited in late February so there were no outside activities, if they have any.
  • This was my third time visiting. My little sister had never been. It was wonderful watching her reaction.
  • This place is so much fun. A very interactive way to learn history. Awesome place for kids.
  • 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.
