The Mission of the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and Wasco County Historical Museum is to inspire appreciation and stewardship of the Columbia River Gorge and Wasco County through collection, preservation and interpretation of cultural and natural history resources. The award-winning 48,200-square-foot facility is situated on a 54-acre point of land adjacent to the Columbia River and the Historic Columbia River Highway, in one of the oldest continuously occupied areas in North America (over 11,000 years). The site provides walking trails, a pond and scenic overlooks. Live raptor education programs engage all ages in issues related to habitat preservation.
