It’s only open Thursday through Sunday 11 to 4. We wish it had been opened and it looks interesting on the outside

Nice looking home. It is a museum now. They cover about their family. The house is huge!

Thomas, the father started to take pictures in 1900, especially of the new cars.

The Indians used to live in this town.

Lots of pictures and events that happened the last century.

We saw some baskets, school desks and some information about the Yaquina Bay Bridge.

They covered how people lived here.

It was quite interesting to learn from the past.

Worthwhile to see!

This is a great little place to visit. It's free, but they accept donations. The guide was very informative. If you don't want to read the posters, you can just ask the guide. You can walk through the space in less than an hour.

It is very dark and depressing in here. It is not a good place too bring small children if you are on a tourist trap jaunt. I was forced too do a few reports here back in school. I like the exterior of the building. It reminds me of what that Newport looked like on hundred years ago. The historical information that is available here is correct too the best of my knowledge. Leave the kids at home. This place is great for High School and College students if you need too do a report on somthing historical. All of the information is there in large letters.

Related to the Pacific Maritime and Heritage Center which also keeps the same hours. It's a small house with four rooms of exhibits. The woman there was very informative and it was like we got a personal guided tour (much like we did at the PM&HC). Frankly these museums are much more educational than the tourist traps in town that are higher rated here. Drop by, learn something, and toss some cash in the donation box.

I must say though that it's of much more interest to visitors somewhat familiar with the Oregon coast. If you are visiting Newport first time from, say, Chicago, you probably won't find it interesting.

Great little find with yet another passionate, informational guide to chat with about all the interesting trinkets inside. I wish they had more street signs and advertising, I would have come years ago.

I am a member of the Lincoln County Historical Society and am prompted to post a simple explanation for the "40,000" artifacts negative review. Sometimes the cyber world zeros in on a few words of a sentence. The fact is that there are over 40,000 artifacts in the LCHS COLLECTION. Burrows House has a donation box instead of an admission fee to support the efforts of the Historical Society.

We did not get to go into this lighthouse because we arrived too early; but, I like it better than the Yaquina Lighthouse because it was not as touristy. It was not crowded, had a lovely view and garden at the lighthouse. The walk to the lighthouse along the beach or path was pleasant.

It was a Victorian home with pretty much nothing in it. It has 2 rooms to view. The ad says 40,000 artifacts, which is not true. It was by donation, so I was not out much money, but still, not worth your time.
