At The History Museum of Hood River County, we believe a museum is a place not just for storing unique objects, but it is also a place for people to engage, interact and ponder. Because education involves active participation, we offer a wide array of events and exhibitions that range from celebration to education, for both adult audiences and the entire family to enjoy.

Past Events



November 5, 6:00 pm

Join us November 5th in the lovely Riverview Room at Riverside Community Church in downtown Hood River for an evening of local history and music. Enjoy generous hors d'oeuvres, Phelps Creek Vineyard wines, and local beer while actors from this year’s Cemetery Tales take you back in time. Local musicians will provide the live soundtrack. Get into friendly competition and bid on fabulous silent and live auction items. Tell your friends and grab a seat to be entertained and educated while supporting YOUR history museum!

Dust off your fine china and polish the silver!

The History Museum's Tea Party is back for its fifth year! Once again, we're going virtual. Revel in exquisite savories and sweets and sip quality tea from the comfort of your own home.
