The Historic Alsea Bay Bridge Interpretive Center is a must-visit.  Depicting all the bridges along the Oregon Coast, from Astoria to Brookings, The Center opened in 1991 in conjunction with the opening of the new Alsea Bay Bridge.  The original bridge, built in 1936, carried travelers over the Alsea Bay for more than 50 years.  Photos, archives and even parts of the original bridge are inside The Center.  A full-scale model of the new bridge is featured.

The Center is now also the new home of THE WALDPORT HERITAGE MUSEUM.  Celebrating Waldport’s rich history, The Museum showcases artifacts, stories, photos and many of the tools used to create and sustain life along the bay, the Pacific Ocean and throughout the Siulsaw National Forest.

Admission is free with volunteers providing tours, visitor information and friendly hospitality.  Current operating hours are Thursday through Monday, 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.  541.563.3500.  Located at the south end of The Alsea Bay Bridge on Hwy. 101 in Waldport.
