Housed in the historic 1920 Natatorium at 2480 Grove Street, the Baker Heritage Museum displays and interprets the rich history of the region. In 2023, an exhibit about the Oregon Trail features artifacts and information from the National HIstoric Oregon Trail Center, which is temporarily closed for renovationns. Permanent and changing exhibits of mining, timber, ranching, agriculture, early Baker City life, a new exhibit on Chinese culture in Baker County, and wildlife fill the 33,000 square foot building. The 18-ton Cavin-Warfel Collection of rocks and fossils is one of the finest in the western United States. Whether you spend an hour or spend the day touring the museum you will come away with an appreciation of the region and the people who settled here.

Hours: Mid-March – October, 7 days a week, 9AM – 4PM. Admission charged.
