Oregon Historical Society Museum
The permanent exhibit covers Oregon’s history with displays on Native Americans, the Oregon Trail, and the growth of industries. This museum seems kind of small. One reason may be that, even though it’s the only museum in Oregon that has exhibits about the entire state, it’s a private museum, founded in 1898, and largely funded by donations and grants.
The museum is accessible.
We visited on a Saturday and parked on the street. Even on a weekend we had to circle around a few times before we found a space. Some of the curb cuts are very good, others are steep. Museum
