    The Coos History Museum is not accepting any new collections items, including artifacts and photos, while we search for our new collections staff. If you have a donation, please inquire after January 1, 2017. 

    We are still accepting research requests, however results may take up to six months. 

    We can also process your photo purchase or reproduction request. Please contact us to obtain the request form.  

    Thank you for your patience and understanding as we go through this transition.

    While here, WCC also helped us install a section of the McCullough Bridge for display outside at the south end of the parking lot and assisted us in getting the propeller from the New Carissa positioned in a temporary spot near the parking entrance.  

    Clean Cut Landscaping was simultaneously working on landscaping the eastern bioswale.
