What to See

grand-entrance
Chief Creamery Greeter
Meet Flower, Tillamook’s very own award-winning show cow. She stands guard of all the tastiness that lives inside and keeps a friendly eye on the guests as they enter.
Look Up. It’s Floating Loaves!
This sculpture was also designed by Olson Kundig and inspired by the cheddar blocks created right here in the factory. All art should be this delicious looking.
Caring For Our Cows
Some of our farmer owners have been Tillamook farmers for four generations. When it comes to cow care, our ladies get pampered with the best care, from fitness trackers and extra soft bedding to rolling back massagers and perfectly prepared feed.
Cow exhibit
Go Hands-On
Milking all the cows in Tillamook by hand would take forever! That's why our farms use more modern methods like fully-automated, robotic milkers or the more traditional milking parlor pictured here.
The Loaf Low-Down
In the Viewing Gallery, take a behind-the-scenes look at our cheese factory. You’ll discover just how we turn high-quality milk into award-winning cheddar. Yep! That’s real future Tillamook cheese down there. Next stop: aging for anywhere from 3 months to 5 years.
Come Graze With Us
Our new Northwest-inspired menu, created by one of Portland’s top chefs, Sarah Schafer, includes many of the classic Tillamook cheese dishes, but don’t miss the fried cheese curds!
Cup or Cone?
If you’re in the mood for a sweet treat, you won’t want to miss our ice cream counter. Here, our iconic, super creamy flavors are scooped up big. And, you didn’t hear it from us, but sometimes we serve up new flavors before they hit stores.
Grab a Memento
No trip to the Tillamook Creamery is complete without a little keepsake! Grab something for the dairy lover in your life with cool water bottles, hats, and kids' books. Or snag some Tillamook gear for yourself to wear proudly wherever you go.
For The Kitchen
Get your hands on limited edition vintages and exclusive flavors you can’t find anywhere else. Foodies will love the collection of Oregon-made essentials. But you can always just fill your shopping basket with your favorite loaf for yourself–we won’t tell.

  • An expanded Tillamook Ice Cream counter, available for indoor and seasonal outdoor service.

  • A new coffee and yogurt bar where visitors can purchase coffee and espresso drinks and customize their favorite Tillamook Yogurt with a variety of toppings.

  • A large retail space featuring Tillamook products and high-quality gifts and souvenirs available for purchase all in one, easy-to-shop area.

  • An enhanced viewing experience of Tillamook’s cheese production and packaging operations with better acoustics and exhibit signage, as well as a small theater space where visitors can view short videos about how Tillamook products are made.

  • An in-depth farm exhibit where visitors can learn about cows, dairy technology, and life on the farm.
