Typical local historical society museum. Not a lot to look at, but interesting and informative. Was especially impressed with the complete bar from one of the early gambling houses.
2 floors of wonderful artifacts, and displays. some of this museum was geared towards children, which I thought was great! I found myself trying the different guessing games about the animal tracks and furs. The experience was overall delightful.
Great museum with extremely interesting displays, exhibits and incredible art. Thanks to local resident Michael Foster for his dedication and effort to share the rich history and culture of the area, and to expose the residents to his incredible art collection. A do not miss museum. It will deserve 5 stars when the final floor is finished, I am sure!

In particular, the collection of historic maps documenting the development of knowledge about the northern Pacific region and exploration was a uniquely surprising feature.
Good, basic overview of Astoria. Lots of reading but some other interactive displays for small kids. If weather is poor or have some extra time, worth a stop. Looks like they will have some interesting new exhibits in fall 2013 about the various immigrant groups that made Astoria home. Should be good. Building is very, very impressive! $4 entry fee... More

The building has an elevator to the second floor which is nice if you have problems... More
