“Documentating the history of film's in oregon”

The Oregon Film Museum celebrates the art and legacy of films and film-making in the State of Oregon. Since The Fisherman's Bride, in 1908, Oregon has helped give birth to such classics as: The General  The Great Race  One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest  Paint Your Wagon  Animal House  Kindergarten Cop  ...and, of course, The Goonies. In fact we have movies listed on this website. Some refer to Oregon as "Hollywood North." Why Oregon? Our unique landscapes allows film-makers to use Oregon as a backdrop for just about anywhere. We've been the desert, the mountains, river, and the sea. Sometimes we're California, Georgia, and a South Pacific Island. Housed in the old Clatsop County Jail, the museum invites visitors to explore the films and production behind making movies in Oregon. Wander through this building that was an actual working jail (from 1914 - 1976) and the scene of the famous opening jail break from the Goonies. The Clatsop County Historical Society operates the Heritage Museum, and the Uppertown Firefighter's Museum. In 2005, as part of the 20th Anniversary Celebration of The Goonies, the Heritage Museum featured a temporary exhibit of Goonies memorabilia. It was our busiest weekend, month, and summer we had ever had! Plans to create the Oregon Film Museum began shortly afterward.

Do not expect a lot from this museum, yet. It's a good idea with little budget. If you're a HUGE Goonies fan, then it'll be cool. It's also interesting to note all the other movies made in Oregon that they talk about.

Since you can't really visit the Goonies House anymore (I know, I'm devastated, too...) but hopefully the jail from the movie is an acceptable substitute. It's actually a historic jail that's been turned into a little museum dedicated to movies filmed in the state... including the Goonies :)

A fun museum for a Goonies fan but it is very small. You can see movie posters, film your own scenes, watch video clips and explore the jail from the opening scene of the movie.
