The Museum at Warm Springs
Native American Museum On the Reservation
The Museum At Warm Springs, Oregon’s first tribal museum, is located just off Hwy 26 on the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs Reservation. A dream since its inception in 1974, the grand opening was celebrated in 1993 thanks to the strong and generous support of the Tribal Council. One of the most exquisite collections of Plateau Native American artifacts in the country, it details the culture and history of the three tribes that make up the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, allowing visitors to experience firsthand the sounds of ancient songs and languages, the mastery of traditional craftsmen, and the sights of the rich and colorful cultures. A striking piece of architecture, the 25,000 square-foot structure also has a gift shop that offers a tremendous array of locally-made beadwork and arts, Pendleton products, huckleberry products, jewelry, books and traditional and contemporary Native American music. On summer weekends you can witness live demonstrations by Tribal Members of the arts, history, and culture. Check their Events page for details. Open Tuesday – Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
