  • Oregon and the world's forests and their management fee (at the time $ 7) and exhibition facilities. Experience cutting machinesimulator (it fits). And the soil of the forest exhibit can crawl tunnel, dugout in a fallen tree that mimics the little buggers uhauha. The exhibition on the culture of the forest and around the staircase landing was sent from Hokkaido bear carvings. Learned is something not seen in the Japan Pavilion is, depending on the device becomes a meaningful exhibition.

  • Neat place. Forestry/logging simulation was worn out and not working correctly so that was a disappointment. Enjoyed it more than I had though. Good information and a learning opportunity. Doesn't look like exhibits change much so after you've seen it once ......
  • One of the best places to explore Oregon's nature. Near the zoo and a must see! I highly recommend a visit and for those that embrace mother nature; I think you will leave with a smile! Children will love this place!!!
  • It was a neat way to spend a couple of hours. We also learned some cool facts and a little history about Forestry.
  • I hiked with a group first through the Vietnam War Memorial. Then off through some woodsy trails to a high point that had a good view of the city and hazy mountains . We stopped at the viewpoint and had apple cider and donuts. After starting up again on the hike we went on a trail towards my car then I bid goodbye and went to my car.
  • Museum about forests and how people use them. Some exhibits are dated, but I thought the museum was good. I spent 2 hours here.
