  • Columbia River Maritime Museum

    Six galleries, the Great Hall, and the Lightship Columbia interpret the region's rich maritime history. Visitors of all ages experience what it's like to pilot a tugboat, participate in a Coast Guard rescue, and live in Astoria during the height of salmon fishing. Explore marine transportation from the days of dugout canoes, through the age of sail, to the present. Walk the bridge of a WW II warship, marvel at the 44-ft motor lifeboat plowing through a wave in a rescue mission. Interactive, hands-on exhibits. Board the Lightship Columbia, a National Historic Landmark that once guided ships to safety at the mouth of the Columbia River. Watch family friendly movies in the 3D theater. Take classes at the Barbey Martime Center. Sail a model boat on the newly opened Warnock Model Boat Pond.
