Please bring your guests to the museum this holiday!

AMUSEMENTS is a 2,000 square foot exhibition of toys, games, trains, bicycles, dolls and more that appeals to adults and children alike.

In the Moreland Auditorium is the Philomath Open Studios exhibition, which showcases nine Benton County artists who are exhibiting their diverse media at the museum from November 12, 2010 through January 8, 2011.

With the acquisition of the Horner Collection in 2008, we have more than doubled the number of artifacts in our collections. Starting with “Horner Homecoming” in 2009 and “Can You Hear Me? Now?” in 2010, Mark Tolonen, Exhibitions Curator, and his team of dedicated volunteers have been developing thematic shows that illustrate the depth and breadth of the Society’s collections. Many of these artifacts have not been seen by the public since the Horner Museum at Oregon State University closed in 1993.

Admission is always free!
