Our Mission and Vision

Mission

The Coos History Museum creates a better understanding of life in Coos County and Oregon’s South Coast, past and present, and our place in that life.  We do this by collecting and preserving stories, artifacts, photographs, and documents, and by helping create opportunities for people to interpret them in meaningful thought-provoking, and engaging ways.

Vision

The Coos History Museum is a welcoming community gathering place and a valued regional resource.  We share intriguing human stories about Coos County and Oregon’s South Coast, and we help diverse audiences connect with each other and with our region’s culture, histories, and heritage.
