Home of Baker County History

Housed in the historic 1920 Natatorium, the Baker Heritage Museum, formerly Oregon Trail Regional Museum, displays and interprets the rich history of the region.

Permanent and changing exhibits of mining, timber, ranching, agriculture, early Baker City life, Chinese culture and wildlife fill the 33,000 square foot building. Whether you spend an hour or spend the day touring the museum you will come away with an appreciation of our region and the people who settled here.

but will reopen mid
March 7 days a week from 9am to 4pm.


Special Holiday Openings:

December 26 - 29 from 10am – 3pm
