The Umpqua Discovery Center in Reedsport

No visit to the Oregon Coast is complete without a visit to the Umpqua Discovery Center in Reedsport.  Part San Francisco exploratorium, part natural history museum, and part local history  extravaganza – The Umpqua Discovery Center delivers far more than you would expect from a small town museum.

090809 520

This is a fantastic combination of high tech sound and light combined with real historical and natural history artifacts.  You can literally slide into a bear cave, play with cool weather instruments, and go up into a high boardwalk pioneer town. Admission is $8 for adults and $4 for kids 16 and under.

The mission of the Umpqua Discovery Center is to provide users and visitors with education about the natural and cultural history of the Lower Umpqua Area. It is staffed and supported by the community and volunteers.
