    I will say the center doesn't have very good signs from off of Highway 14 but we managed to find it. Admission is $10 per person. It was laid out very well and flowed nicely. Lots and lots of exhibits...  more »

    Free tour, without spending the money. Pretty smart to allow a Google 360 back pack camera inside the museum. Now people don't have to waste their money on admission. Thank you.

    Very nice...given the area. 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). Most of it focused on the geological formation of the Columbia River Gorge and not much on the Lewis & Clark Corps of Discovery and how the Columbia may have looked in their days.
