The Museum was organized for the purpose of preserving the history of Cannon Beach by seeking, collecting, and protecting historical memorabilia of all kinds, by recording oral histories, and by making these materials available to the public whenever possible. We invite you to explore our many programs and resources for historical study, read our newsletters, get the stamp of the Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, learn how you can volunteer or support the Museum, view historic Cannon Beach photos, or shop history in the online gift shop. Stop by for a visit to the Museum, located on the corner of Spruce and Sunset in Cannon Beach, and let a little history into your life. Open six days a week, Wednesday through Monday from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

This is a hidden jewel in Cannon Beach. It's slightly off of the main drag, but easy to find. The history of Cannon Beach is very well displayed and most interesting. Gave us a great background on the local area.More

To really know this place, honor and respect it by learning our history. Take some time to deepen and learn from the good and tasty lessons at the History Center.

We spent a couple of hours wandering around this wonderful museum looking at all of the historic pictures and finding out things I never knew about Cannon Beach and the Oregon Coast. If you have time, this is a great way to spend the afternoon.

Really worth seeing. They featured a lot of town history as it related to tourism development and logging industry. Of special interest to us was the wealth of first person accounts (local people) on WW II. So glad we went!
