We went in February, so the outdoor exhibits were not available, but few people there which was nice. The museum is moderate in size, which is fine because you then you can look at everything with out rushing. Great for young and old. Our group ranged from 9 - 83 years old. Kids play area had a half dozen self guided craft projects plus hands on activities. Very good live rapture presentation. Overall very good deal for price.

Some good natural science exhibits, but more emphasis on pioneer, settler and native exhibits. We missed the raptor show, which sounded terrific. Very educational historically, but scientifically I was left wanting more. The "cataclysm theater" was on a small screen, out in the open and barely audible. I would have liked to have seen film about the Missoula floods and glaciation in a theater setting with good sound. But overall a good experience and I would recommend it.

Plan at least 2 hours so you can see/do everything. The life sized mammoth, a chance to practice Native American beading, and the live Birds of Prey show were my 12 year old's favorites. Bring your copy of Curious Gorge; lots to see nearby, too!

Situated on a 54-acre plot of land near the Columbia River, Columbia Gorge Discovery Center & Museum chronicles thousands of years of the area?s natural and cultural history. The 48,200-square-foot facility?which received an American Institute of Architects Honor Award?features interactive and multimedia exhibits that let guests study everything from the volcanic activity and floods that created the gorge to its wildlife. Guests can stand in the shadow of a life-size, 13-foot mammoth in the Ice Age exhibit or hide from its intimidating tusks under a canvas tent modeled after the one used by Lewis and Clark.

As the official interpretive center of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic area, the center celebrates the area?s indigenous flora and fauna while working to preserve them. Five acres of indigenous plants host turtles, ducks, geese, songbirds, and other native wildlife, on which guests spy as they stroll through the nature walk. At the raptor exhibit, visitors can come face-to-beak with various birds of prey, including a bald eagle, a great horned owl, and a red-tailed hawk. The Columbia Gorge Discovery Center & Museum hosts frequent educational programs and tour groups that detail ways to protect the area?s biodiversity without having to marry a tree.
