Say cheese: New Tillamook Creamery Visitor Center is a reason to smile

After nearly two years of renovations, Tillamook Creamery is reopening its Visitor Center at the factory. The facility has some of the old favorites, like the ice cream counter, views of the factory floor, and squeaky cheese at the end of tours, along with some new amenities like a wood-fired pizza oven and café space.

TILLAMOOK, Ore. – The new Tillamook Creamery Visitor Center opened to the public Wednesday morning.

The new tourist attraction on Highway 101 North opened at 8 a.m. Wednesday after offering an exclusive preview to media members Tuesday.

The new, larger creamery will showcase Tillamook as a world-class dairy brand and share the story of the farmer-owned co-op that has operated for more than 100 years.

The facility was designed by award-winning Seattle-based architecture firm Olson Kundig.

Some of its new features include a larger dining area, a new menu featuring Tillamook products, an expanded ice cream counter, a new coffee and yogurt bar, a large retail space and an enhanced viewing experience to watch the Tillamook cheese production process.

And, most importantly, more samples than ever before!
