Expert Review of Columbia River Maritime Museum

Beach Review of Columbia River Maritime Museum

BeachExpert Rating 4.0 out of 5
BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Maritime history defines Astoria, and this museum covers marine transportation from dugout canoes to the present.
  • Don't miss the award-winning introductory film, The Great River of the West, showing how Bar Pilots--the port pilots who guide ships between the ocean and the Columbia River-- negotiate the dangerous winds and waves during a fierce storm.
  • There are some hands-on exhibits--take the helm of a tugboat and participate in a Coast Guard "rescue"--but the best of all is boarding the real Lightship Columbia, a National Historic Landmark.
