We spent three hours at this museum. There are so many things to see. Some narratives are by the actual coast guard people that lived and experienced the historic exhibits that you see. Worth every bit of your time. We went early and was glad. We could walk between exhibits at our pace.

This is a very nicely laid out and thoughtful memorial park right along the Columbia River and just under the Astoria-Megler Bridge. We especially loved the views of the bridge from the park. If you need refreshment the Three Cups Coffee House right across the street is great for coffee and/or lunch.

The memorial is art, and history, consolation and rememberance. someone was at or around the memorial almost every time i walked by it. couples with children, families with dogs, bicyclists just resting, or waiting or visiting loved ones memorialized there.

Our hotel was under the bridge just near this memorial park and it was a great place to just relax in the evening and enjoy the summer weather on the river front. When the bridge is done being refinished, it will be a nice counterpoint to the quiet of the park, which has a fountain, a lawn, picnic area, a... More

There is a lot of things to see here. Just when you think you are done at the museum you find another room.

We stopped to let the children walk by the waterside, and realized what it was after we stopped. Very nicely done memorial wall, and a peaceful place to sit and watch the water traffic and the bridge.

Very beautiful and peaceful. The River is right there, it's a nice memorial and then you can walk along the riverwalk and enjoy the day. I highly recommend this memorial when visiting Astoria.
