Staff and volunteers at the Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center Museum have announced a packed schedule for the museum's free 23rd anniversary party Saturday, May 12th, 2018. The museum staff and volunteers will be manning a food booth selling typical favorites like hamburgers and hotdogs, nacho’s, and augmented with some now-famous strawberry shortcake. In the main lobby visitors will get a chance to watch local traditional hand-crafters creating products such as wool, bead work and quilts. Following will be the 23rd annual membership meeting at 2:30 p.m., held in the DeGroote Theater where museum members can vote for new board members.
Are you looking to host an office party, wedding, birthday party, class reunion, or maybe just a great get together? If so we would love to host it.
The museum boasts thousands of square feet of available space including a meeting room, theater, large outdoor patio, as well as the Grand Gallery. Our staff would love to show you the space and help make your event one to remember.

First Peoples focuses on the history of the original people to live in this area of the Gorge, the Cascade Chinook. The Emory Strong Library is also visible, showing his collection of early-man artifacts.
The largest gallery in the museum is Harvesting Resources, which focuses on the timber and fishing industries in the Gorge. It also contains a waterfall. Four very large artifacts are on display.
