Why Kids ♥ It
With three floors of permanent and rotating exhibitions, the Oregon Historical Society brings the past to life for visitors of all ages. In our cornerstone exhibition, Experience Oregon, kids can touch a real beaver pelt, be transported to the Oregon Trail by walking through a covered wagon, and compete in the Pendleton Round-Up by playing a touchscreen video game!
Why Parents ♥ It
Who lives in Oregon, where did they come from, and what are some challenges and choices they have faced? Parents and young history buffs can explore these questions in History Hub, a hands-on, highly interactive exhibition designed for youth and families.
