Very interesting for a small museum. but if you want to learn about Oregon's culture history this is a good place to visit. One could spend a couple of hours looking, reading, and submerging oneself with the information they presented.
Great museum with many interesting, interactive, and well-curated exhibits! And it was free for me as a student which is always a big plus.
Love the welcoming environment into the past and science! A fun little activity to do with friends and family.
