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

Welcome to the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum, where history comes alive! The History Center 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, learn how you can volunteer or support the History Center, view historic Cannon Beach photos, or shop history at the Museum Store. 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. Admission is FREE, but donations are gladly accepted!


The Cannon Beach History Center & Museum is excited to announce that they are currently looking to hire another team member. The Museum currently has two full-time staff members, but is seeking a part-time summer receptionist. The position would be a great paid summer internship program or a way for any history enthusiast to dip their toes in the Museum life. And what a great one it is! The receptionist will not just greet visitors and answer phones, they will also assist the Museum's Archivist and Executive Director with exhibits, research, and managing our ever growing social media sites. Join us in bringing history to life for our over 5,000 summer visitors.

The job description and application are below. The application and a resume can be emailed to the Director at or feel free to check out the Museum and drop your resume and application at 1387 South Spruce Street in Cannon Beach, Oregon.
