Gaze into Oregon’s past at Tamástslikt Cultural Institute, a museum and education center at the Umatilla Indian Reservation. Native American history comes alive for the whole family.
The Institute is located just east of Pendleton in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, and it’s where some of the state’s richest cultural history can be found. Visitors can explore Tamástslikt’s Living Cultural Village and learn about Native American traditions from experts. Storytelling, demonstrations and hospitality are all part of the experience of learning how the original stewards of the land lived thousands of years ago.
The massive hallways of the Center also hold intriguing exhibits, complete with rotating exhibitions and a well-curated museum. When finished touring, visitors can enjoy lunch or light fare at the on-site Kinship Café.
Hours: Open Monday – Saturday from 10 a.m. -5 p.m.
Cost: First Fridays are free, admission otherwise varies by age and group size.
