Our Facility

The Mt. Hood Cultural Center and Museum is housed in a beautiful structure in the heart of Government Camp. Located along the ruts of the historic Barlow Road, the building site offers a wonderful view of Mt. Hood. The building is a work in progress as we convert the former Bed and Breakfast into a facility to accommodate the museum exhibits and cultural center functions. The museum consists of six galleries plus a meeting/multipurpose room.

Mountain Art Gallery: This gallery features fine arts from the museum collection as well as current works from local artist or artwork produced in our classes. A nice selection of local art work is for sale with profits used to support the center and museum.

Mt. Hood Gallery: Learn about the unique natural history associated with an active volcano. Orient yourself on the three dimensional interactive mountain model.


Trailblazers Gallery: The pioneering and early exploration of Mt. Hood is feature in this gallery.

Going Downhill Fast: The exhibits in this space portray the evolution of skiing on Mt. Hood. The large collection of snow skis and associated equipment are of special interest to skiers.

Mt. Hood National Forest Gallery: This gallery includes a working forest fire lookout, a 1920"s rangers office, a Civilian Conservation Corp tribute, and other changing exhibits focusing on the Forest Service and the Mt. Hood National Forest.

The Clubhouse Gallery: This gallery will be installed upon completion of the elevator installation. Currently this space houses our public internet computer center.
