The museum was well laid out and had fascinating details about the numerous tragedies where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean. The signage was interesting and there were videos and life sized boats. We easily spent several hours there- much more than I anticipated. At the wharf there was a coast guard ship to board.

We stopped in while visiting Astoria and we are glad we did. Lots of information about the area and locals. Many videos and activities for both adults and kids. A lot of history about Astoria from years ago to present. Just an overall nice museum.
