Just off of exit #123 on Interstate 5, near the Douglas County Fairgrounds, is the award-winning Douglas County Museum of History and Natural History. Spend hours exploring the yesteryears of Douglas County. Exhibits depict 8,000 years of Native American culture, pioneer history, and the natural history that makes the Umpqua Valley special.
