Do not waste your time or money! Go across the street instead. This should have been free! Not much here unless you have kids and want to make a short film. Or you want to purchase a gift.

Not really impressed with this site. A very small Museum with some "film making" sets. None of the three sets worked when we were there. The gift shop did have some cute "Goonies" stuff and we bought a couple of items. This was one of the three museums you can get a single ticket for, which made it a good... More

This museum is really really small, but has a lot of good Goonies memorabilia. The staff was very friendly.

This was a must see only because we are huge Goonies fans. The $6 entrance fee is excessive. We still had a good time seeing a Goonies film location though!

This museum was very disappointing. It was in the old jail and they would've been better off to have more of a history about the jail than about the film basically all they do is focus on the goodies film They charge six dollars per person and it was way overpriced. This was something that I would pass if I... More

Every time the Goonies movie (1985) has an anniversary, nostalgic fans flock to this sleepy little town of Astoria, Oregon. Instead of trying to visit the Goonies Home (now closed) I suggest you visit the Oregon Film Museum, at 732 Duane St, Astoria, 97103. Located in a historic old jail, there are lots of Goonies memorabilia, along with artifacts from... More

We were excited to learn more about one of our favorite Oregon films -- Goonies -- and it turns out that there are likely many movies you've seen that were filmed in Oregon. The space is cramped, the information minimal or difficult to experience. the one feature that would have intrigued younger children (7-12 age range is my guess) was... More

They have the Goonies Jeep here and if you buy the Heritage Pass at the Flavel Carriage House this stop is included with the Flavel House and Heritage Museum. We went to all three and this had the least to offer - but it's right across the street from the Flavel House so you might as well take it in.

We arrived just after they opened. I imagine this place could get crowded. It's not that big, but interesting. You can 'film' you own scene from a movie on 3 different sets. I had NO idea Oregon had so many films filmed here!

It was really small and $15 for a family of four. Just a bunch of old, falling apart props. You can make your own videos but we chose not to due to the dingy and lack of cleanliness. The largest part of the place was the overpriced gift shop.
