  • This is a must see! We're from Portland and it's worth the drive. The exhibits are amazing, interesting and well developed. Great for the entire family. The kids loved the interactive exhibits and the scavenger hunt. The exhibits are full of information and history. Just love learning about the history of this area. Able to wander around for hours. The area and facility is beautiful and maintained. Trails nearby and the views are awesome. Able to stop in for a quick visit or spend hours learning and relaxing, it's worth the drive. It's impressive.
  • Phenomenal Exhibit. Drive by this numerous times but never noticed it. We thoroughly enjoyed this Oregon gem.
  • The waterfalls, but most of all the history of the Asian Chinese People who were a huge part of history moving forward. Thank you for the careful preservation of such a valuable past.
  • Great place to visit and learn more about the area. Their displays and interactive area for the kids were phenomenal. We spent several hours here and would visit again! Seeing the live owl and hawk was fascinating!
  • Absolutely AMAZING!! Would definitely recommend! No complaints.
