  • My wife and I love this place. Lots of fun and quirky items on display here. From pioneer cookware to minerals to a room full of taxidermy'd animals, this place has a little bit of everything. A must-do if you're visiting Tillamook!
  • Highly Recommended! My group of ten millennials decided to stop by having some time to kill in Tillamook and having seen surprisingly good reviews here on Google Maps. It did not disappoint. We kept ourselves entertained for over an hour. Note: Unless you are under 18, the museum is actually $4, not free like some other reviews said. The exhibits are aging a bit but covered a lot of interesting ground. The main floor is focused on history of the original Tillamook settlers including funny old photos and a look at what living was like back then; but also includes some local artwork, native history, and military history and artifacts. Don't miss the big old US map from the early 1900s which is packed with other weird reference info from the time such as the crazy time zones that existed before standard time. The basement covers the industrial history of the area. Upstairs is the star attraction--the main courtroom (it's an old courthouse) is packed with a taxidermy collection with every animal you can imagine. A local historian was even dressed up in Victorian era clothes and gave us a lesson in how women dressed back in the era.
  • This museum has an AMAZING collection of Oregon history. I will be back!
  • It's a very interesting part of Oregon pioneer history
  • Great little museum, free to enter, and lots of info and interesting things to see. From the history of the area, to animals. Very neat and usually overlooked unique piece of our town.
