Description
Established in 1951 as a pioneer museum, this county museum is a museum in transition. The museum has regularly changing exhibits and hosts over 50,000 photos on the website (lchm.org).

Currently located amidst the Lane County Fairgrounds, the museum's exhibits interpret Lane County history from the 1800s to present. During the pandemic the museum created an enhanced online exhibit presence with story maps (lchm.org) and social media (Facebook and Instagram). Current onsite exhibits feature a McKenzie River drift boat, artifacts from the former courthouse (1898, demolished in 1960), historic vehicles including an Oregon trail wagon (1850) and Ford Model T. The museum is currently preparing to host "Racing to Change", an exhibit originating with the Oregon Black Pioneers and detailing the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s locally and statewide.

Lane County History Museum is a member of the Oregon Museums Association, the American Association for State and Local History, Western Museums Association and the American Alliance of Museums.
