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...

Beautiful work of art to honor those we've lost serving out in those crazy waters. A must see when in town.

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.

We visited this on a cruise stop. Small, but enjoyable. Plan to cover the basic museum in about 1 hour. A nice amount of time if you are in town for a limited period and like boats.

A wonderfull place to visit while travelling down from Vancouver to the Panama Canal. great people from all walks of life and in our short visit made many friends. This is a great reminder of the perils of the sea and if you visit spend a little time reading the inscriptions.

We ate our lunch here, and enjoyed more than the food. The trolley came by a couple of times, trawlers passed down-river, and we learned some maritime history as we browsed through the memorial's walls. Water tragedy is no respecter of occupation, age, expertise or era, and it was sobering to read the names and stories. We also enjoyed the... More

Being in Astoria on Memorial weekend, we felt if appropriate to visit the memorial and it was worth it. It was quite touching to see the flowers on the various memorial plaques and to see the community support of the families that have lost someone.

very moving tribute to all fisherman, seafarers and coast guard men and women who have lost their lives leaving from the Columbia River. good place for quiet reflection and a small insight to how important the river/ocean lifestyle is to this town
