Of all the years we've been traveling to Cannon Beach, we've never been to the museum. It's a small place but has a lot of interesting history. I'm glad we stopped in.

Small, but surprisingly good exhibits and information that lends depth and appreciation of the history of the town.

This is a hidden jewel in Cannon Beach. It's slightly off of the main drag, but easy to find. The history of Cannon Beach is very well displayed and most interesting. Gave us a great background on the local area.

If you can figure out their schedule this is worth the trip. They've done a nice job of telling the story of Cannon Beach's history.

Was a great place to get a quick overview of the town and area. The museum has artifacts from all different eras of history. They have some old cannons from merchant ships that sank. Plus explains the history of how the granite haystacks are created....More

To really know this place, honor and respect it by learning our history. Take some time to deepen and learn from the good and tasty lessons at the History Center.

We spent a couple of hours wandering around this wonderful museum looking at all of the historic pictures and finding out things I never knew about Cannon Beach and the Oregon Coast. If you have time, this is a great way to spend the afternoon.

Really worth seeing. They featured a lot of town history as it related to tourism development and logging industry. Of special interest to us was the wealth of first person accounts (local people) on WW II. So glad we went!
