Who We Are...

Garialdi Museum

The Garibaldi Museum is a small nonprofit museum located in Garibaldi, on the beautiful coast of Oregon. Being a nonprofit museum in a city of 790 people poses many challenges and rewards. The Garibaldi museum meets the challenges that are in front of us, while cherishing the rewards that make us plan for future generations.

The museum was founded by the Parkin family who had a vision of having an organization that would become a cornerstone in the community. They enlisted many people across the United States and within Tillamook County to make this dream come true. Without their persistence the Garibaldi Museum would not be here to embrace our community and visitors.

The museum carries on this tradition to this day. We strive to be a place that people, no matter what their age or origin, have a place to go to find their history, or tell their story.

The museum is governed by a very dedicated board of directors. The members of this board give their time and energy because of the love they have for the Garibaldi Museum. Please meet our 2016 Board of Directors.

Our Mission is a reminder of the goals that we wish to achieve, while reminding us why the museum was founded. Volunteers and staff play a big part of the day-to-day running of the museum. Without the dedication of all these people who give so
much, the museum would not be such a family enriched atmosphere.

We would also like to thank all our friends and neighbors who have helped us in the past and the ones that are working with us into the future. We enjoy that you are working with us and beside us, making the Garibaldi Museum one of the must see museums in Tillamook County, and a museum that you can be truly proud of.
