“Very small but worthwhile”

Siuslaw Pioneer Museum
Ranked #9 of 21 things to do in Florence
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 December 2017

Housed in a 1905 schoolhouse, this is a small but worthwhile museum. Locals have donated family memorabilia, which makes it all feel more personal and relatable. Household goods, tools, furniture, farm equipment, and mariner memorabilia are lovingly displayed. Lots of books for purchase, plenty of free parking, and a knowledgable docent to answer any questions.

This is a cute little local museum. We enjoyed the collections, displays and the Dosant. It is worth your time to visit this museum.

This museum was very interesting and informative. We did not expect to spend much time there but we were in, we could not leave very quickly. Had to look everything over.

While the place is small, it has two floors of displays. It is housed in an old school building that has a history of its own. The volunteers were friendly and knowledgeable, and we learned a lot about the history of the surrounding area. For those that like pioneer history, this place is one you might like to visit.
