End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center
Just look for the covered wagons and circle to find this center. Focusing on modern history of the Pacific Northwest (fur traders, the railroad and more), the center puts on a show every hour from 10am-3:30pm daily. The Willamette Trade and Craft Workshop behind the center allows you to interact with trail country traditions. Group rates are available, and the center can be rented for private events. Admission is $7 for adults; $5 for Juniors (5-17); children under five are free.
The inside museum is standard for a Interpretive Center with stuff for kids to see and do; lots of videos. The outside paved trails are a lot of fun and take in the beautiful sites of this part of Oregon.
There is a half hearted shop and a few information boards but otherwise this is a really depressing place. We have travelled most of the trail by car and all the interpretation centres we have stopped at have been excellent. This is a sorry place.
Lots of changes at the end of the Trail this summer. Now you get a ticket to Historic Oregon City- so there's lots to see and do. Kids like riding the old Trolley around town-free! And making cedar shakes or packing up their own wagon....or locking Johnny in the old jail. The audiovisual show has a spooky Dr. McLoughlin introducing people who came on the Oregon Trail....like Lucy who was only eleven!
little kids might not get as much out of it, but for gradeschoolers on up and their families....it was fun.
