Worth a stop!

There is a lot to this museum and it’s free! The gentleman who was there must have been very bored because I got a private tour of each of the displays with additional information not included on the displays. The Mount St. Helens car is in the front as well. Lots of eruption displays.

Learning from the Cowlitz
Aug 2018 • Couples
This is a lovely historical museum.

They started with the Cowlitz Natives. They lived here for 12,000 years. The British traded with the Native Americans.

In 1850, Isaac Stevens negotiated with the Native Americans. Many tribes went to war.

In 1871, the Northern Pacific came into town.

There were lots of artifacts in the museum.

They also focused on the loggers. It was a tough job!

When the Great war came, it brought lots of jobs.

I enjoyed this museum. I learned a lot.

Worthwhile to see!

Colitz county is portrayed in displays that tell a story but aren't too busy. Several hands on activities for children

A pictorial history of the county with some interesting videos, a storehouse of area antiques and stories about the inhabitants and the native population. Stories about industry like Weyhauser and Reynolds aluminum. Wonderfully kept and staffed. best for younger story buffs. Great parking.

Enjoyed learning about the interesting history of Cowlitz County. The museum is well laid out and features a work-class exhibition of the county's journey from the native Americans to today. The staff and director were s friendly and informative. Definitely worth a visit!
