Applegate Trail Interpretive Center Reviews & Ratings

  • What an unexpected treat. High quality museum devoted to the Applegate trail and early settlers. We had a nice brunch at the Wolf Creek Inn and toured through the ghost town of Golden. On our way back to Grants Pass we we're happy to find the museum open. There is a small gift/antique shop in the front of the building with the exhibits behind. It's a privately run museum so there is a small entrance fee but I found it to be well worth the price of admission. Be sure to also check out the covered bridge if you are in the area.

  • My Husband and I are locals and had been meaning to visit the museum for the longest time, we finally did so today. It is literally "Chockers" full of local history, from the genuine antiques and artifacts, cinema/movie representation, and interactive displays. President Hayes is also mentioned with photos. Extremely well worth visiting! Can not recommend it high enough! Only open during Summer Months however so visit while you can. Donations appreciated to keep this history alive. Contact the Sunny Valley Store.

  • This hidden gem of a museum brings to life the hardships and sacrifices experienced by early settlers brave enough to journey west over the Applegate Trail in the mid-1800s. Exhibits are beautifully displayed and documented with many personal accounts. This is SO much more than just a few dusty artifacts! Much thought, time and care has been taken to illustrate this aspect of the American West. It is truly a worthwhile stop for anyone who appreciates the fortitude and pioneer spirit of these early settlers.

  • Very detailed and accurate interpretation of the Applegate trail and the people who blazed the trail west to Oregon. It is very interactive as you walk through with tons of artifacts , murals , and many other things to see. Really recommend this lost treasure of knowledge to anyone who likes history and the way we became part of this country.

  • A look back into the reality of what an extraordinary feat people blindly chose to endure to settle this wilderness. Hardship doesn't begin to describe what the people experienced. Did you know it was promoted by the US inorder to claim it before the King of England did? There was no regard for the indigenous people as usual. Also, the only other route once here, was a raft trip down the Columbia. Mr. Applegate pioneered and forged this path. Crazy! You should definitely check out this place. The Docent is very welcoming and encouraging about the musuem's many wonders. Look up hours online before making the trip.
