The Klamath County Museum was a worthwhile stop. There are many displays, some sure to capture your attention. Don't miss the room off the lobby with the audio tracks of some of the musicians who have performed here over the years.

This was a great place to spend an hour or two to learn about the local history of Klamath Falls and the surrounding areas. My two teenagers had fun going through all the various exhibits and even played on the piano that was there. Recommended!!!
