A.C. Gilbert's Discovery Village is a hands-on children's museum spread across three historical houses that reside in Riverfront Park. It is named after A.C. Gilbert, a Salem native, toy magnate, and inventor of the Erector Set. True to a life spent creating educational and scientific toys, his namesake museum provides a place for kids to interact with exhibits that encourage play and provoke thought. From a giant model of an animal cell to a faux paleontological dig full of ancient bones to musical instruments like a South American rainwheel, the museum's stations encompass a number of scientific and cultural disciplines?though little ones might only interpret each activity as fun. Furthermore, youth can heal stuffed animals in the Village Vet Room or scale a 52-foot edifice that is one of the world's largest Erector Set towers, boasting three slides and a maze.

Historic Deepwood Estate's 1894 Queen Anne home rests its gables amid approximately 4 acres of lush gardens and nature trails, fascinating visitors with its Victorian-era architectural features and insightful exhibits. The Cherry Jubilee benefit dinner kicks off at 6 p.m. with a cocktail party and a silent auction, where revelers can raise hands, paddles, or 20-foot oars to bid on myriad prizes, including a one-week getaway at Eagle Crest Resort, golf outings, and spa packages. The estate’s intricately designed gardens will play host to the evening's cherry-themed four-course dinner, which commences with a spinach, almond, cherry, and manchego cheese salad and culminates with delectable desserts, such as cherry tarts and italian panna cotta luxuriating in a cherry-infused sea. Live music by JT & The Tourists revives the poodle-skirt sounds of the ’50s and ’60s, specially remixed to conscript shoes into bobby-soxing dance armies. Proceeds from the Cherry Jubilee dinner and silent auction benefit the Friends of Deepwood and their quest for historic preservation.

The picture preservers at A Framer's Touch encase beloved paintings, photos, and keepsakes in artfully constructed wall hangings that have garnered numerous awards at regional and international framing competitions. After art is transported to the shop, certified framers embark upon the 10-step framing process by consulting with customers to decide on the piece's materials, design, and ability to hang. A stockade of approximately 2,500 moulding samples proffers ample aesthetic options for frames' outer boundaries, and a variety of mats, glass coverings, and needlework choices allow for mind-bending levels of customization. Though rates vary as much as each piece's framed-in contents, basic prices range from $39.99 for an 8"x10" frame to $139.99 for a 24"x36" frame with a mat. To ensure professional work and eliminate the chances of frames being lost or damaged while catapulted between store and workshop, all framing takes place in A Framer's Touch's art-coddling shop.

In 1792, Captain Robert Gray navigated his ship, the Columbia Rediviva, into a hidden river entrance. In doing so, he discovered one of America's largest rivers, and quickly named it after his trusty boat. Gray would be best remembered for his foray into the Columbia River, but that leg of the journey was just one part of his explorations throughout the Pacific Northwest. The Garibaldi Maritime Museum honors his voyages ?and those of others?with models and displays about sailing in the 18th century.

  • Eye Catcher: An eight-foot-tall reproduction of the figurehead of the Columbia, which was also the first U.S. ship to circle the globe without a big push from a whale

  • Permanent Mainstay: A half-model of the Columbia shows how the ship was provisioned for its journeys

  • Don't Miss: An exhibit on the history of the city of Garibaldi fills an entire wing of the museum with turn-of-the-century photos and artifacts

  • For the Little Ones: Staff costumed in tri-tip hats help kids to solve ship-construction puzzles and handle items such as hard tack and tea bricks

For more than 50 years, the geologists of Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks and Minerals have invited the world to peruse their collections within a historic, ranch-style home in Hillsboro. But the specimens on display have been around for eons longer than that house has stood. There are cross sections of petrified wood, for instance, with a "Talking Log" exhibit to explain how wood transforms into stone over millions of years. Semi-transparent agate stones tell the tale of the planet's volcanic past with their intricately formed layers, and meteorites bear the pockmarks of their plummets to earth. A room of fluorescent stones glow neon in the dark?a remnant from the prehistoric days before cavemen discovered lava lamps.

Most of these collections are on display indoors, but the museum's outdoor grounds are also a draw. Visitors can wander along a sandstone-tiled path, exploring lush gardens filled with ferns, wildflowers, and rhododendrons. If you walk this path?whether during a spontaneous visit or during an organized event such as the summer festival?you may spot some natural wildlife, such as deer, rabbits, or hummingbirds frenetically sipping from a feeder.

When it was founded in 1987, Frame Central was a social hub for artists, and was even curiously named for facial hair. However, Beard Outlet has since morphed into a seven-location franchise, dedicated to simplifying the framing process. The shops’ onsite stock of matboard, frame moulding, and other key supplies ensures speedy DIY framing projects—which visitors can complete in an hour—and single-day professional framing. An array of pre-framed mirrors and artwork allows shoppers to enhance their blank walls without taping a napping friend to them. Shoppers can also stock up on framing supplies such as case glass and hanging hardware.
