Holiday Gift Guide: Museum memberships

With Christmas fast approaching and shopping days running short, it’s time once again to do a local holiday gift guide, presenting a variety of locally-made products and local stores and shops to hopefully give you a number of ideas for your shopping needs.

Des Chutes Historical MuseumI know it’s counterintuitive and not as exciting as beer or custom handmade mugs¬†but have you been to the High Desert Museum lately? Both the High Desert and the Des Chutes Historical Museum¬†offer up fascinating, fruitful experiences to anyone who loves history, local culture, and (in the case of High Desert) local biology.
