My husband and I came to Klamath Falls,OR from Sonoma County,CA looking for a nice little town to get away from the bigger towns. We came across "Things To Do" and stumbled upon this museum so we decided to check it out. Which was a fabulous idea! There was a really sweet woman who was working at the front desk... More

Stopped by for a look on a quiet Saturday. We paid $5 each to get in. There were probably about 8-10 other visitors at the time. The museum is located inside the old national guard armory building. A part of the old floor still exists which is cool, as well as the stage area. There is a room designated to... More

We didn´t plan to come here, but since the weather was so bad we paid it a visit and were not disappointed. There is an excellent exhibition about animals living in the region, how Indian tipis are built and a touching record of the local Indian wars.

This museum seems to be geared towards Veterans of the Vietnam War and some WWII. There is also exhibits about the Modoc and Klamath Nations but I was disappointed in how the descriptions were "dumbed down" and really did not depict how the nations lived. The mineral and rock exhibit was neat and our daughter liked the black room that... More

A visit to the Klamath County Museum will give visitors a comprehensive overview of the Klamath Basin. Well worth the admission price!

We visit lots of small town museums and this one has lots of variety.... We would recommend it to anyone that has an hour or so... My wife liked the old time music display and liked the "Modoc War"explanations....

There was uch a diversity of things to see and learn about this area. From the Modoc wars in the 1800's, to pushing a button and guessing which animal is making the sound you hear. Great displays of historical significance and also objects that you say "My grandmother had one of those!" Well worth a visit.

An old-fashioned museum, but charming in the feeling of time travel into the historial past of this area. (And is right down the block from The Klamath Basin Brewery (aka "The Creamery"). Another perk of visiting this neat old-timey museum, full of great memories of another era.
