This is a great little place to visit. It's free, but they accept donations. The guide was very informative. If you don't want to read the posters, you can just ask the guide. You can walk through the space in less than an hour.

It is very dark and depressing in here. It is not a good place too bring small children if you are on a tourist trap jaunt. I was forced too do a few reports here back in school. I like the exterior of the building....More

Great little find with yet another passionate, informational guide to chat with about all the interesting trinkets inside. I wish they had more street signs and advertising, I would have come years ago.

I am a member of the Lincoln County Historical Society and am prompted to post a simple explanation for the "40,000" artifacts negative review. Sometimes the cyber world zeros in on a few words of a sentence. The fact is that there are over 40,000...More

We did not get to go into this lighthouse because we arrived too early; but, I like it better than the Yaquina Lighthouse because it was not as touristy. It was not crowded, had a lovely view and garden at the lighthouse. The walk to...More

It was a Victorian home with pretty much nothing in it. It has 2 rooms to view. The ad says 40,000 artifacts, which is not true. It was by donation, so I was not out much money, but still, not worth your time.

If you haven't made time for this off the beaten path museum, you simply must. You will enjoy it greatly!

The museum included lots of wonderful displays in a very small home. Lots of great information and history provided. The volunteer was very knowledgeable.
