Columbia River Maritime Museum
Located in Astoria on the mouth of the Columbia River, this museum holds one of the largest collections of maritime artifacts in the West. Astoria is the gateway to the trade and travel of the Pacific, and many a ship saw her demise in the often-rough waters of America's longest east-west river. This is the only accredited museum of its type in the western states and is Oregon's official maritime museum. From canoes to submarines, there is plenty of interesting water-vessel history to be explored.
Very nicely done museum. Big city museum quality in this small city. An excellent place to visit, especially when it's raining outside. Your ticket also allows you to enter the Columbia lighthouse boat docked outside.
It was awesome i never really liked that kind of thing but for Astoria it was a good musuem i got a tour on the Columbia ship my cousins grand father personally made a dent on the side of it while trying to fix it i also got to take a very nice tour on a Coast gaurd that was being used!
I have been to several of the great museums of the world, and would place the Columbia River Maritime Museum among the best. Other museums have a broader subject matter than this one, but this museum does a thorough and immensely interesting treatment of life on the Columbia River and particularly the lives of those who made their living through fishing and commerce thereon.
