This museum is an award-winning building hosting several of the Northwest’s most interesting historic collections. From life in the Gorge before the Anglo settlers to 2013 time, to the world’s largest rosary collection, the Interpretive Center is a day well spent, www.columbiagorge.org.

Just a stone’s throw from the Bridge of the Gods, this magnificent building houses a 37ft. fish wheel and a restored 19th century steam engine. The center features exhibits from the cataclysmic formation of the Columbia River Gorge, to the histories and art of native tribes and early pioneers.
