Arts & Museums
Nestled within the historical Reid School, this museum gives visitors a glimpse into the local history of Deschutes County. The Reid School was constructed in 1914, in the modernist style, and was added to National Register of Historic Places in 1979, making it a city landmark. Des Chutes Historical Museum features various artifacts belonging to native tribes as well as former residents. Visitors get to experience the classroom scene of Reid school and also the World War scenario.
"Dedicated to broadening the understanding of the High Desert's wildlife, culture, art and natural resources," over 80,000 square feet of exhibits await you with living history demonstrations, lectures, and animal interpretations presented regularly. The museum is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. except for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day. Extended hours are offered in the summer and admission is charged. Allow about three to four hours to see it all.
