  • This small museum is nicely done, with personable staff. We especially enjoyed the special exhibit on music. Worth a visit.  more »
  • I didn't know about this place at all until I stumbled upon it. It is an old library building on Main Street that has since been turned into the Clark County Historical Museum. It is interesting but.....  more »
  • The remodeled museum is a must. I was impressed what they accomplished, a small hometown atmosphere in Vancouver, Washington. A place to go if you want to learn more about the history of our area. I didn't see all of it, I was there for a meeting. Plan to go back, take time & learn. Never to old, you can teach an old dog new tricks like me for instance. The museum is located in a great location. Easy parking, some metered, some not.
  • This is an Awesome Museum. It was once a Carnegie Library that was built in 1909 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
