The Museum’s national-award-winning exhibits comprise 14,280 square feet and over 10,000 artifacts – tools and equipment - telling the stories of the Columbia Plateau Tenino and Wasco people, Oregon Trail travelers, rural dry-land wheat farmers and their families, military service, schools and toys – from horse-power to electricity and engine-power. Interpretation and hands-on activities for students are suitable for grades K-12. Interpretive materials include A Guide to the Oregon Trails in Sherman County, A Tourist’s Guide to Grain Production, and a twice-yearly historical anthology, Sherman County: For the Record with local stories by local authors. Amenities include clean restrooms, The Museum Store, and rotating exhibits featuring local artists. Open daily May through October 10-5 – otherwise by appointment - next to Moro City Park and History Wall.
