Oregon Film Museum, Astoria

2.4
#3 of 6 in Museums in Astoria
Since 1908 (The Fisherman’s Bride), Oregon has helped give birth to such classics as The General, The Great Race, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Paint Your Wagon, Animal House, Kindergarten Cop, and, of course, The Goonies. Some have called the State “Hollywood North.”

Housed in the old Clatsop County Jail, the museum invites visitors to explore these and other films and the production behind making movies in Oregon. Wander through this building that was an actual working jail (from 1914 – 1976) and the scene of the famous opening jail break from the Goonies.

  • It was $6 when I went. Pretty cool layout and it was fun making a video like a movie. Worth the $6 spent, but it's a quick tour (can do in 5-30min), so don't let your expectations run wild. The right room has two screens worth reinacting. The upstairs is not open.
  • I don't regret going. My kids had fun filming clips of themselves on the fake sets they have. I think $6 per adult is a little much considering you could walk through the whole thing in 10 minutes. It's neat, but it looks more like somebody's hobby than a museum.
