“Documentating the history of film's in oregon”
The Oregon Film Museum celebrates the art and legacy of films and film-making in the State of Oregon. Since The Fisherman's Bride, in 1908, Oregon has helped give birth to such classics as: The General The Great Race One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest Paint Your Wagon Animal House Kindergarten Cop ...and, of course, The Goonies. In fact we have movies listed on this website. Some refer to Oregon as "Hollywood North." Why Oregon? Our unique landscapes allows film-makers to use Oregon as a backdrop for just about anywhere. We've been the desert, the mountains, river, and the sea. Sometimes we're California, Georgia, and a South Pacific Island. Housed in the old Clatsop County Jail, the museum invites visitors to explore the films and production behind making movies in Oregon. Wander through this building that was an actual working jail (from 1914 - 1976) and the scene of the famous opening jail break from the Goonies. The Clatsop County Historical Society operates the Heritage Museum, and the Uppertown Firefighter's Museum. In 2005, as part of the 20th Anniversary Celebration of The Goonies, the Heritage Museum featured a temporary exhibit of Goonies memorabilia. It was our busiest weekend, month, and summer we had ever had! Plans to create the Oregon Film Museum began shortly afterward.
Such a wonderful museum experience for any Gponies fan! See where they filmed the jail scene and some memorabilia from the movie. Lots of Instagrammable photo opportunities and a great gift shop.... Read more
Tiny. I would be curious to see if all actual film memorabilia added up to more than 5 things in the 2 rooms that make up the museum. I can appreciate the thought, but this needs a serious update... Read more
Four stars, rounded up to five for the inexpensive ($6/adult) and nostalgic adventure provided by this small and mighty Oregon Film Museum. Peruse the Goonies memorabilia, find One-Eyed Willy,... Read more
