It is next to the Museum and can't do one without the other. Always take
visitors there.

Very nice to walk through the lightship and see how the coast guardsmen lived and worked.

This former lightship (floating light house) is docked next to the Columbia River Maritime Museum in Astoria and viewing it is included in the
museum admission ticket. It is a quick self tour, interesting seeing the captain's quarters ( looked skimpy until you see the crew's quarters!) and seeing the galley, the 17" b&w tv "entertainment center." Knowledgable tour volunteer on board to answer questions.

Interesting and informative. Kept in very good repair and great that it is so accessible to those able to climb down the steps. Volunteer was very helpful and well-informed.

The lightship is a great display of life on-board a floating lighthouse protecting sailors from the dangers of the Columbia Bar. Visitors are allowed to tour the ship at their leisure seeing life below the deck of what must have been an exciting place to work only a few decades ago. Also on display is the first automated buoy that replace the lightship.
