The Columbia River Maritime Museum’s quality exhibits and the scope of its collections makes it one of the finest maritime museums in the nation. The new 44,200 square feet space houses interactive exhibits that combine history with cutting-edge technology and numerous Museum acquisitions. Visitors of all ages can experience what it’s like to pilot a tugboat, participate in a Coast Guard rescue on the Columbia River Bar, and live in Astoria during the height of salmon fishing. Huge windows along the north wall showcase the Columbia River as a dynamic backdrop for exhibits.
