Four Rivers Cultural Center, a 501(c)3 nonprofit located in the Western Treasure Valley, Ontario, Oregon is a 85,000 sq foot facility that is home to a performing arts theater, museum, Japanese garden, rotating art gallery, and conference and rental facility. Our mission and belief are that every individual should have access to the transforming power of art, culture, education, and history, because of that belief, we provide enriching programming at the lowest cost or free. We bring people to learn from one

another and challenge the idea that our differences separate us. We do this through four tenets of our programming; to Inspire, Preserve, Serve and Inform.

The Mariners’ Museum sits in an urban oasis – the 550-acre park is now home to the 167-acre Mariners’ Lake and the Noland Trail – a five-mile shoreline trail with 14 bridges. Within the Museum itself, you will find 90,000 square feet of exhibition galleries including the prestigious International Small Craft Center, and the award-winning USS Monitor Center. This state-of-the-art exhibition and conservation lab houses 210 tons of artifacts from the Civil War ironclad Monitor, which were recovered from NOAA’s Monitor National Marine Sanctuary.
