  • Definitely worth the stop on your way North or South on I-5 or if you are a resident! History of the area well presented and lots of artifacts. Minimal entrance fee and nice gift shop.
  • I visit lots of different museums around the country. This museum is very clean, open floor plan, decent air conditioning, and friendly. It feels like a work in progress because there is painting and roped off areas. The lighting on some different splays is not sufficient and several displays lack explanation. The early native American displays need more native American and less white settlers. There are shaped stones, tomahawks, and clothing, and information on migration and diet, but not on culture. Lots of settlers that should be in another section, like downstairs with the wagon, and household treasures. If you visit only one museum outside the big cities, this is a good one, I t covers native Americans, pioneers, gold, logging, forestry, and the animal furs, and animals are really well done. Good job on the taxidermy!
