Welcome to the
History Center & Museum
where history comes to life!

Welcome to the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum, where history comes alive! The Museum was organized for the purpose of preserving the history of Cannon Beach by seeking, collecting, and protecting historical memorabilia of all kinds, by recording oral histories, and by making these materials available to the public whenever possible.

We invite you to explore our many programs and resources for historical study, read our newsletters, get the stamp of the Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, learn how you can volunteer or support the Museum, view historic Cannon Beach photos, or shop history in the online gift shop. Stop by for a visit to the History Center, located on the corner of Spruce and Sunset in Cannon Beach, and let a little history into your life. Open Wednesday through Monday from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.






Cannon Beach, Oregon - For the first time the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum is putting out a special call for work. We see the beautiful photographs on social media, the walls of coffee shops and galleries. They are icnoic images of Oregon. As a photographer you capture special moments. Each photo, each captured image tells your story and the story of Oregon.

Share your story! Pick up to five pieces of work that describes you, as an Oregonian, as a photographer. A short bio would be a huge help. Where are you from? What made you pick up that camera or phone for that special image? Be a part of history and share your story!

The Cannon Beach History Center and Museum is sending out an open call for work inviting "Behind the Lens." Please submit your work and short biography to the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum's executive director at Questions can be directed to the same contact. The details: Work must be submitted by May 15. Decisions will be made by the end of May with work put on display by June 10. Artists may sell work. Their photos must be mounted or framed. Assistance will be available to those that need it. Artist's work will be on display through September of this year.
