The Columbia Gorge and Mt. Hood Area Sights

Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center Museum

Updated 03/22/2013

Fodor's Review

A petroglyph whose eyes seem to look straight at you, "She Who Watches" or "Tsagaglalal" is the logo for this museum. Sitting among the dramatic basaltic cliffs on the north bank of the Columbia River Gorge, the museum explores the life of the gorge: its history, culture, architecture, legends, and much more. The younger crowd may enjoy the reenactment of the gorge's formation in the Creation Theatre. Or a 37-foot high fishwheel from the 19th century. Historians will appreciate

studying the water route of the Lewis & Clark Expedition. There's also an eye-opening exhibit that examines current environmental impacts on the area.
