Siuslaw Pioneer Museum
The Siuslaw Pioneer Museum is the home of historic displays, pictures and other information about the Siuslaw River area, including The Pioneers and the City of Florence. These displays feature the Pioneers whose occupations were primarily as loggers and fishermen. In the early days the Siuslaw River was the primary and nearly exclusive means of travel in the area. Visitors to the museum will have the opportunity to see real settings that these early pioneers lived in.
You could spend just an hour or two at the Siuslaw Pioneer Museum or perhaps make a day of it and include a self guided Historic Walking Tour which begins at the museum and brings you by 21 different buildings & locations in the Old Town Florence area.
The museum's Research Library has documentary information regarding our local history and pioneer families. An audio-visual presentation shows a brief history of Florence along with information on early shipwrecks.
