Warm Springs is a rather sad place. If you drive around the community, you won't see a lot of fine subdivisions. The museum provides an excellent education into how poorly the community has been treated from basically the first day the illegal immigrants (white man) showed up. Pathetic story. The museum itself has some very nice displays and a lot... More

spent a few hours with grand kids touring a nice museum. It was a cold, rainy and snowy may day that drove us mostly indoors. A bit pricey but worth it. Nice displays and even some wild life. We did brave outside exhibits and enjoyed the old time cabins and farm. We missed the otters as they were bedded down.... More

The Museum at Warm Springs provides visitors with authentic information regarding the history of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. Voices of our elders have been preserved to share information about our history and culture. The art gallery changes occasionally and showcases interesting and varied types of artwork. The gift shop is a go-to place when I am shopping for... More

The Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs museum is well worth a stop. It is never busy and I don't get why thousands of cars pass by and don't give it a try. It is a very well kept museum, with an extensive collection. Nice gift shop with a very cool selection of Native American jewelry.

We at The Museum are so happy to welcome visitors. Keep in mind that in 2018 we'll be celebrating The Museum's 25th Anniversary with many wonderful activities and exhibits. We'll have a wonderful "Artists' Village" and fun family activities the weekend of the Solar Eclipse, August 19, 20 this year! "Twanat" - to follow tradition! More

So glad we made the drive to Warm Springs. The museum is very well set up with beautiful exhibits. So many personal artifacts. I would recommend this visit when in the area. We were the only visitors today but then again it was snowing! Closed on Mondays.

Rarely do people get the chance to hear the stories of the USA's native peoples in their own words. This is one of the better Native American Museums. It is well worth spending a few hours touring and then go outside to see the native plants exhibits

The museum holds artifacts from three tribes. They are well displayed, with elder voices and illumination of life like scenes. There are three small "houses' to visit, to get a sense of living in them. Lots of good videos and interviews with elders. We were fortunate to have an elder Native American answer our questions. A lot of the art... More

What a wonderful museum. They exhibits are done so well and so informative. I would defiantly recommend this museum if you are just driving on 26 or staying at warm springs. Very educational.

We made a special journey from Wilsonville having passed the museum on the way back from Smith Rock 3 years ago. It had closed for the day. Being from the UK, working within walking distance of Nottingham Castle so used to being interested in the history of a location, I was really interested to have some insight into what Oregon...

We were just passing through and decided to stop. The price was quite reasonable. The exhibits were beautifully done and were very educational. There were push buttons for narratives at all the major exhibits, so you could spend your time actually looking at the exhibits, rather than reading signs. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
