Fort Dalles Museum, in The Dalles, Oregon, is housed in the former Surgeon’s Quarters; the only remaining officer’s quarters of the 1856 Fort Dalles military complex. One of Oregon’s oldest history museums, it first opened its doors in 1905.

A group of civic-minded pioneer women were instrumental in saving the building at the turn of the century.  Through an act of Congress it became the property of the Oregon Historical Society as they were a recognized non-profit organization. OHS authorized the ladies of the “Old Fort Dalles Historical Society” to open it as a museum in 1905.  Since the early 1950s it has operated under the management of  the Wasco County/City of The Dalles Museum Commission.

Take a tour of our unique collection of pioneer and military artifacts and antique wagons at one of the old west’s most pivotal places in history. You will enjoy viewing our exhibits and walking on the grounds of this military fort, built during the 1800s.
