If you’ve visited us at the temporary Visitors Center lately, or even just passed by, you’ve probably noticed some big changes since our last update! We’re excited to see the steel for the skeleton of the Visitors Center is in place, including the main canopy of the building.

The team is now working quickly to get the external wall panels in place and weatherproofed. These two milestones are huge as it enables internal work to continue in a dry, encapsulated environment which is crucial because as you might know, November in Tillamook equals rain.

Hi Molly,

The new Visitors Center at the Tillamook Cheese Factory is expected to be completed sometime in the summer of 2018. We don't yet have an exact date because it will largely depend on weather conditions this winter, but we will announce the opening date as soon as we know it.

Thanks,

Sierra, of the Tillamook team

Do you have an approximate estimate for month of the opening of the new center?

Hi Jim,

We are hoping the new Visitors Center will be open sometime in July, but much of that will depend on how quickly construction will be able to progress during the winter months with more extreme weather.

Thanks,

Sierra, of the Tillamook team
