The Haines Museum has the feel of an old Antique store. They have groups of artifacts from the area that really show life in wild west. For example, they have the original telephone switchboard that was used until the 1960’s and Model T Ford.
The Baker City Museum is very professional, and well done. It is in the 100-year-old Baker Municipal Natatorium (aquatic center). They have a massive rock and gem exhibit as well as a Wally Byam exhibit (the founder of Airstream trailers). He was born in Baker City.
