Portlandia flows to the sea at this piece of Rip City's past. Take the tugboat tour and hear how old seafarers battled the river currents. Vessels include the Barge Russell, Columbia River Gillnetter and Steam Sternwheeler Portland. The library and its staff are educational and cheerful, while the gift store has books and other river ware.
PRO - The boat/ship is very clean, the ship models are very detailed and there is an abundance of artifacts from all types of water going craft.The ship itself is quite impressive, especialy the engine room.The staff were very happy to see us and "Joe", our guide, was quite knowledgable on ships. It is a good way to spend a couple of hours. The boat is the museum, the original museum building across the street has been closed (Jan 2006)
Cons - There is no street sign on the Front Av. ramp showing SW Naito Pkw. It is a good 100 yard walk from the parking to the boat. The parking fee is from $1.25 an hour on the street to $6.95 in the parking lots.
