Well sited by the bridge and next to the river. This memorial remember those who worked on the river and at sea, also those who were lost their lives in the water. A fitting tribute. Take a few minutes to visit.

This is a small, simple memorial next to the Holiday Inn Express. I never fail to be deeply moved by the names and dates of those lost at sea. I am a fan of what I call one star attractions, and this is one of the best. Probably not of interest to kids. Best if you are in an introspective... More

Interesting Maritime Memorial,as I read the story along with remembrances of people and times passed. At 1st as a lady and I chatted thought that it was like the "Perfect Storm" memorial. Its kinda sorta but not really,its worth a look,it will not bore you but keep you thinking long after you leave. Great views of huge cargo ships coming... More

It's worth a stop on the river walk to take pause for the many fishing vessels and fishermen lost at sea, mostly just beyond the entrance to the Columbia River. It really gives you an appreciation for the dedication and sacrifices made by these mariners. All the etched plaques on those curved display walls tell quite a story...

The Columbia River and the commerce it has generated for hundreds of years is very well explained in this facility. Great family activity. It also give you a great appreciation for the role the Coast Guards plays in this story

Wonderful maritime museum and the oldest established settlement west of the Rocky Mountains with a great local flair. Continually changing and expanding. Well worth the time...:)

If you have any interest in the modern history of the Columbia River and it's inhabitants, you definitely need to visit this museum. Very modern with great use of technology to tell the story of this area. Admission includes access to a retired lighthouse shop....another interesting story.
