  • This museum (with friendly, helpful, knowledgeable staff) gives insight into daily life in Oregon during the mid 1800s to the early 20th century. It's not a fort in the typical sense (no walls, cannon, etc.). But rather, two houses, a barn, sheds, tools, etc., actually used by army officers living at the fort, and an area farming family. The museum is great for history buffs, kids, and families alike.
  • More a museum of local history..but interesting just the same..
  • This is a piece of Oregon History that you have to see. The folks who give you the tour are local and know all the history and they are informative. It is a welcome break from camping or wind surfing. If you see the home and the Fort Dalles Museum you get a sense of what it meant to be a pioneer, where you did not have Walmart or Safeway down the road. This was really real. Excellent tour and by the way if you are military and military service dependent it is free to get in , but make a donation.
