    Good stop if you are a fan of Tillamook

    I love Tillamook cheese so was happy to visit their HQ while we were in the area. Long line due to COVID but it moved fast. Decent self guided tour. Lots of fun stuff in the souvenir shop. Grab lunch, especially the grilled cheese sandwich.

    Tourist Trap

    This place is a tourist trap and the staff here are rude. If you are looking to buy Tillamook cheese merchandise, then I guess this is a must-see.

    Not work going now

    We used to always stop by here when we would visit Oregon, but now it's mostly closed, u have to eat all the food in your car, there are waiting lines and all sorts of regulations in place, the souvenir shop was very limited in what they had, totally not recommend it at this point, especially with small children. 😩

    Awesome visit

    The Tillamook Creamery was wonderful and despite having limited attractions open, we learned more than we ever wanted to know about cheese making. The design of the Tillamook Creamery is spectacular and the self-guided tour is full of easy to read and comprehend information. Samples and the farm tour were unavailable due to the pandemic. My family of five including two adults, two teens, and a child under 10 loved this place. At the end, we got delicious Tillamook Ice Cream. We highly recommend the Tillamook Creamery.

    As we headed to the Oregon coast after a few days exploring the wine regions around McMinnville, we deliberately took the route via Tillamook, because we were interested in visiting the store and perhaps seeing the factory. We arrived around noon to see a line for entry stretching waaaaaayyy down the parking lot; it was well over 200 people long and seemed to be very slow-moving. I’m sure some of this was due to restrictions imposed for safety during COVID-19. Understandable, but compared to other tourist spots that have done things like buy-in-advance timed entry, etc., this seemed like a poor system. Really, we were most interested in the shop—Tillamook makes a lot of products and we wanted to see them. Annoyingly, the shop is only available to people who are seeing the factory—which meant standing in that long line. We skipped it. I can’t quite understand the logic of requiring people who want to buy some of your products to also go on your tour. The ice cream shop had a separate interest; we were, at least, able to get some ice cream without waiting for hours. The ice cream was excellent, at Tillamook’s is known to be: very creamy, no freezer burn, fun local flavors (e.g., Oregon strawberry and one with huckleberry). The portion size for the price was great. However, despite having a very large outdoor deck, you were not allowed to eat your ice cream near the facility; you had to go out to the parking lot. I could certainly understand closing to indoor dining but didn’t understand why distanced outdoor tables would be problematic. Overall, a disappointing visit; it left the impression that they haven’t done a very good job thinking about how their processes need to adapt to COVID-19. If you want to experience the store or take the tour, seems like you should carve out the full day due to the lines.
