Cascade Locks Historical Museum

Call ahead This experience may be open for on-site visitation; however, offerings and/or operating procedures may have changed due to COVID-19. Please verify details before you go and visit the COVID-19 Resources page for more information.

The Museum is located in one of three original locktender’s houses, built in 1905, in the Port of Cascade Locks Marine Park. The Museum overlooks the original lock and canal built in the late 1800’s. The first steam locomotive built on the Pacific Coast is on display here, the Oregon Pony Engine. At this National Historic Site you’ll find fascinating artifacts, information and photographs.  A must-see if you’re interested in historic waterways and locks, the once-fierce Cascade Rapids, railroads, fish wheels, sternwheelers and steamboats on the Columbia River, or Cascade Locks History.

Open daily May through September.
