  • A small little place packed with history about Cannon Beach and surrounding areas. So cool.... I could have stayed here for hours but the family was impatient to get to the beach. Definitely want to go back to find out more about this area. The museum is funded wholely by private donations so give generously to this amazing organization.
  • I really like the place. Beaches were large and the backdrop of the rocks in the water was very scenic. Nice town.
  • A cute, small museum detailing the history of a beautiful piece of land. Even though it's small, it packs a lot in. It's a donation based museum too which makes it all the more impressive. Cool place to visit!
  • What great and interesting place to visit.
  • This little museum was a delightful surprise. Cleverly presented the history of Cannon Beach as it related to the rest of the world. We enjoyed our visit very much. The only small quibble was that it was exceedingly warm in the building and made us rush to get out and cool off.
