This is a wonderful museum that I think all ages will enjoy. The Columbia is rich with history from Lewis and Clark to the present day.

This is a stellar museum. Not only the history of the area, and of fishing and canning industries, but also the Coast Guard and the navigational complexities of taking the huge ocean-going vessels up and down the Columbia and out to sea. The displays are text heavy, but you learn so much ... and the building sits right on the river. (PS: great fish n' chips across the street at Bowpicker)

This was a stop in Astoria that my husband wanted to make. I can say, honestly, that I had zero interest in visiting, but I went with an open mind. Boy was I surprised! The museum is so well done, interactive and interesting! There's a lightboat you can tour and so many multimedia and museum displays. It is an exceptional gem. Your trip to Astoria and your understanding of the Columbia River will not be complete without a stop at the Maritime Museum!

Worth every minute. We're the type of people to absorb every bit of information in a place like this, but even the less boat and ocean obsessed will find it enjoyable. Good for all ages.
