I have a lot of relatives in Cowlitz County, and I have lived her for 60 years. We like to go check out the museum to see if anything new has been placed in there. Great place to visit!

A pictorial history of the county with some interesting videos, a storehouse of area antiques and stories about the inhabitants and the native population. Stories about industry like Weyhauser and Reynolds aluminum. Wonderfully kept and staffed. best for younger story buffs. Great parking.

Enjoyed learning about the interesting history of Cowlitz County. The museum is well laid out and features a work-class exhibition of the county's journey from the native Americans to today. The staff and director were s friendly and informative. Definitely worth a visit!
