A fun place to visit and some nice people to chat with, ask them to play you some music. Be sure to go upstairs to see the western room and the woman room.

Great little place

This small museum is away from the river, so you have to want to go there. It is worth it Fife local history. The tour guide was excellent. We left a nice donation.

Great Local Museum
wrz 2019 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
This is a great way to get your questions answered about all things local. It is lovingly cared for by the staff. Info on the trail, Indians, the dam and the geology of the area. They also have a Swedish built home 150 years old. Easy to find up the hill from downtown.

A Fantastic Little Museum
maj 2019
This is a great place to learn about the early life of Oregon or the west. They have the town's original fice alert bells. They would ring a bell that corresponded to a particular area so the residents would know where to go to fight a fire. There is a carriage garage filled with well-preserved carriages and so much more.

A nice little museum, despite the very young tour guide
kwi 2019 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
I had a lovely chat with the curator (I believe his name is Cal) and enjoyed looking around the main building. Then he passed me off to the ever-so-young and extremely energetic tour "guide". I think he was about 14 or so. Now, I'm used to handling teens so I simply settled him down a bit and then we got along fine. He needs to learn more about local history though, as he could not answer several of my questions! I enjoyed the barn display of horse drawn and early motorized vehicles. The Anderson homestead was moderately interesting. It's worth a stop if you like museums. I rated it three dots instead of four due to that young "guide". Once he grows up a bit, I think they'll find visitors will enjoy this museum more.

I am sorry for your unfortunate experience at Fort Dalles Museum/Anderson Homestead. The young man is no longer working as a tour guide at the museum. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. If you are ever in the area please stop by and I will give you a guided tour of The Anderson Homestead.

Has Promise but OMG
maj 2019 • Pary
We were very excited about visiting this museum based on its description and the reviews. The gentleman who gave us a brief overview was wonderful. Unfortunately, he then passed us off to our 12 year old tour guide who was more interested in telling jokes and locking us in rooms than actually giving us a tour. We were unable to stop and look at anything, as he kept telling us What to do and where to go. There was another couple who were as frustrated as we were and at the first opportunity they left. In my opinion, a tour guide should enhance the experience and offer additional knowledge of the museum, not provide adolescent entertainment. Overall, we were extremely disappointed and sorry we stopped. If not for The tour guide, we would have given it 3 stars.

Worth a look

This is small house that was the Surgeon's dwelling inside of the fort. We enjoyed the period furnishings and the displays of antique implements and photos from the period. This museum is worth your time, the folks guiding you are very friendly and knowledgable.
