Hours:  May through September 12:00pm - 5:00pm, closed Mondays

Admission is free.  Donations are welcome.

The Museum is located in one of three original locktender's houses, built in 1905, in the Port of Cascade Locks Marine Park.  The Museum overlooks the original lock and canal built in the late 1800's.  The first steam locomotive built on the Pacific Coast is on display here, the Oregon Pony Engine.  At this National Historic Site you’ll find fascinating artifacts, information and photographs.  A must-see if you're interested in Native Americans in the Gorge, historic waterways and locks, the once-fierce Cascade Rapids, railroads, fish wheels, sternwheelers and steamboats on the Columbia River, or Cascade Locks School history.
