Membership

Columbia River Gorge Discovery Center & Museum membership CardAs the official interpretive center for the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area, the mission of the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and  Museum is to inspire appreciation and stewardship of the Columbia River Gorge and Wasco County through collection, preservation, and interpretation of cultural and natural history resources.

Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and Museum is an independent 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Many people are surprised to learn the Discovery Center is not funded by tax dollars; we are funded by memberships, admissions, events, facility rentals, and donations. Memberships are an integral part of financially supporting the museum and our mission.

We encourage you to enjoy the benefits of becoming a member, or consider gifting a membership to a loved one.
