Discover Springfield’s unique history
The Springfield Museum is an educational institution authorized by the City of Springfield, Oregon to acquire, preserve, and interpret materials that illustrate the history and development of the City of Springfield, the surrounding rural areas of East Lane County, and the state of Oregon. We feature rotating art and historical exhibits, permanent exhibit displays, and provide additional educational programming for our community throughout the year. As one of Lane County’s FREE museums, our exhibits and programming provide an outstanding value for our community.
