Oregon Film Museum

Oregon Film Museum

The Oregon Film Museum covers the history of Oregon filmmaking, and iconic movies like the Goonies and Kindergarten Cop.

The Oregon Film Museum is in the charming, historic coastal town of Astoria (636 Duane Street), two hours northwest of Portland Oregon.  Check hours & fees.

Step inside the Goonies jail.

The small Oregon Film Museum is housed in the old Clatsop County Jail, which you probably recognize from The Goonies (1985). Goonies fans can walk inside the original jail cell featured in the movie, and see fun memorabilia. 

So many famous movies were made in Oregon.

Learn about dozens of other movies made in Astoria, like Kindergarten Cop, Free Willy, and Short Circuit.  There's even an interactive movie set, where you can shoot your own scene against a green screen.  So much fun!

Other cool things to do in Astoria.

There's so much to do in Astoria.  Visit the excellent Columbia River Maritime Museum and learn about the incredible history of the bar pilots and coast guard who work on these dangerous waters.  Tour the Flavel House Victorian mansion, climb the Astoria Column for soaring views over the township, and eat at Buoy Beer on the waterfront. 

Just outside of Astoria you can see the shipwreck at Fort Stevens, and a replica of the original fort that famous explorers Lewis and Clark stayed in at Fort Clatsop.
