  • Great little Interpretive Center/Museum. Great and informative displays, photos, and exhibits including a fully restored Curtiss "Jenny" bi-plane! Worth another visit next time we're up the Gorge!

Unfortunately not a lot of what I expected....Columbia River "then and now"....contrasting the Columbia today with the + Though there were several river related artifacts: salmon trapping device, logging and saw mill tools, train engine....there were some unrelated collections that the museum has been entrusted to hold...such as a fairly comprehensive rosary in particular stuck with a swastika instead of a cross! The main theater was down, so we had to watch the 20 minute video in DVD standard definition (boy, are we spoiled).

  • Nice little museum. It's interesting learning the history of the Columbia river area. Has a small little gift shop.
