The lady that volunteered told us a lot about the exhibit which made it very enjoyable. I don't think we would have got as much out of it otherwise. All in all worth stopping by.

This is a small museum but has a lot of local history. $5 to enter. It covers the history from olden days up to present hang gliding and skiing.

Well laid out and informative. It provided a good background knowledge for the settlement and devolpment of Hood River and its surrounding areas for tourists.
