Wonderful museum in a lovely old historic building. Wide variety of exhibits, very well done and very interesting. Natural history, logging, minerals, local history, Native American, wartime (We especially liked the exhibit about the Japanese balloon bombs).

There are some eye-opening Native American historical displays at this museum. Young and old alike will find information about the settling of this area of Oregon and the effect on the native people.

A large array of artifacts and local history. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. There is a nice gift shop on site. I originally visited the museum in the summer of 2016. I highly recommend visiting the museum if you are in the area!

What a great museum. Covers the development of the area with great artifacts. Large enough to give a good understanding but small enough to not be overwhelming! Loved the room dedicated to the musical legacy with recordings! Rocks, Indian story/artifacts, armory, WWII, schools, farming, forestry,...More

The Klamath County Museum was a worthwhile stop. There are many displays, some sure to capture your attention. Don't miss the room off the lobby with the audio tracks of some of the musicians who have performed here over the years.
