The Seaside Museum & Historical Society of Oregon is a non-profit educational institution that collects, preserves and interprets materials illustrative of the history of Seaside, Oregon’s first seaside resort and its surrounding area.
Fascinating Seaside History
The Seaside Museum ended up being a cool place to stop. Hardly got to the door and was able to join a tour of the cottage next door. The ladies staffing the place are very nice people and fun to talk to. The main museum is small, but very informative. You learn a lot of Seaside. History of the Promenade. Another town with a great fire. You even learn about a shootout that took place in town. And a lot more. Lot of info for a small town. Worth stopping for.
Very nice overview of Seaside
We popped in to the museum not really knowing what to expect but we really enjoyed our quick stop. We learned a lot in a short period of time that helped us appreciate the history of the town. The cottage tour next door was wonderful with some really well preserved items. Definitely worth your time!
Very informative Visit
We stopped by this wonderful museum this morning to look around. We were met by a volunteer who really knew her stuff and information regarding the museum and well as old information regarding Seaside.
Lewis and Clark info
Lots of old photos of people: homesteaders of the 1860s and 70s. Descriptions of the challenges to the Lewis and Clark expedition. Some lighthouse descriiptions and books for sale.
Excellent Small Town Museum
Very interesting look at early Clatsop area history. Nicely done displays honoring native Americans as well as the white settlers. The Butterfield Cottage next door is furnished in period style and gives you a glimpse into the 1890s.
