Museums

The High Desert Museum between Sunriver and Bend is a favorite family activity. There are indoor and outdoor exhibits, a variety of wildlife exhibits and shows, and an extensive living history section with volunteers dressed in era costumes engaged in era activities. Try your hand at pioneer activities or watch a 100 year old, steam-powered saw mill with 48 inch blade in action. If you are specifically interested in central Oregon history, you will enjoy the Des Chutes Historical Museum in Bend.
