Oregon - Where Past is Present

Under construction until fall 2016.
Last winter, the museum began construction on Oregon – Where Past is Present and the adjacent exhibit spaces in the museum’s south wing. The undertaking will bring new interactive displays, fresh content, and greater accessibility to the ten-year-old cultural history exhibit – plus a brand new exhibit area devoted to Oregon’s Paisley Caves.
