  • This is a small but enlightening museum. The history of mental health in itself is interesting, but this was a museum of this specific locale as well. There were biographies of former patients, storie...  more »

  • Few ailments are so misunderstood as mental illness. This unique museum takes a frank and sometimes frightening look at how we have treated those we considered insane. Much progress has been made but ...  more »

  • I was a maintenance employee at the Oregon State Hospital from 2001 to 2007. This was probably the best place I have worked in my career. My coworkers were my best friends. The supervisors were very supportive. I was impressed with the compassion and professionalism with which the clients were treated. If you have a chance to work for the hospital, take it. You will not regret it.
  • Lacking leadership and accountability Overuse of seclusion and restraint causing harm to the vulnerable Segregation and isolation from the real world is not the solutions to life's problems. Waste of mental health funds that could be used to actually help the patient Patients come out worse from the trauma. I have never witnessed a higher level of government corruption and damaging control as this place. Ruined our life from the damage done here
  • Very interesting, displayed beautifully and with cringing reality. Very reasonable admission cost...we learned a lot!
  • It a great place to start a new life, I have 357 days sober, working full time doing Security, Trying to come to work with you guys as Peer Support, MHT1 or LPN, the staff always kept us safe. And I got to meet some great people, attend Native Services, where things finally linked me up with Creator as well as DDA and AA. Last year I was off my rocker, doing stupid stuff nonstop smokin, drinking and gambling, so greatful for everyone in Crossroads. As well as all Staff in Flowers 2 and CrossRoads Mall, Bree and Jerry Brooks in anchor 1.
  • For what it represents it's greatly lacking, small, very limited. Overpriced too for what really amounts to the original entrance.
