This is a really great educational place. Kids love going here. The guides are happy to talk to you about everything in the place. They have some interesting native american pieces.

Family of four with two teenagers escaped the rain while visiting the University of Oregon campus by entering this small, but informative museum. A good way to pass an hour or two and to learn a lot about Oregon's natural and cultural history.
