Located at the north end of the Waterfront Heritage District, the Coos History Museum offers a beautiful and lively place for meetings, community gatherings, and special occasions of all kinds.

The exterior of our building evokes the industrial architecture of Coos Bay’s working waterfront of a century ago. The view from the waterfront and south plaza takes in Coos Bay, from the McCullough bridge at the north, past the confluence of the bay with the Coos River to the hills of the Coast Range. From the tall windows of any of our rental rooms, you can regularly see tugs and barges passing the museum. Seasonally the bay fills with salmon boats. And if you’re really lucky, you can see harbor seals pop up from the water, a flock of great blue herons soaring above the confluence, white egrets, ospreys and rare sightings of a bald eagles. 

The Museum has three event venues with beautiful bay views that can be rented. Our in-door Sprague Gallery includes a warming kitchen, our Outdoor Plaza has enough room for tent events, and our in-door Conference Room is an intimate meeting setting.   

Our Rental Amenities Include: Beautiful Bay Views, Ample parking, a warming kitchen, WiFi, A/V equipment, projector/screen, Logitech video and audio conferencing system, professional indoor or outdoor sound system, 12 8’ x 3’ rectangular tables, 12 5’ round tables, chairs, and a rental liaison assigned to your booking to assist with your needs.
