  • One of the nation's best Maritime Museums, just two short blocks from the Commodore Hotel!
  • Oregon has so much to offer but the coast helps define us. We love learning about the many ways we are connected to the sea!
  • Give yourself at least and hour or so for the full tour. It's a great museum with lots of wonderful exhibit offerings.
  • Get the membership. It is a great place to support and you get many perks like free admission to the Columbia Lightship in the picture below!
  • Photo challenge! Check out these Documerica photos of the Columbia River take 40 years ago. Take a photo of the river or the region today and submit it to our State of the Environment Photo Project.
  • Make sure to check thier closing hours!
  • It was a very nice museum with features appealing to both adults and kids.
  • Carve out at least a couple of hours to really enjoy and go through the museum. So much history and information about the bar that we as visitors had no idea about the Pacific Northwest
  • We got round it in 1.5 hours but didn't get to see the 3D film or inside the lightship in that time. Press the blue button by the TV screen alongside the coast guard boat for excellent footage.
  • The museum was wonderful and interesting!
  • Kind of a cool little museum. Well worth the stop.
  • Amazing boats. Stories from long-gone history to the present. Well worth the time and money to visit!
  • $12 a person
  • They open @ 9:30.
  • Awesome place! Learned a lot and spent 2 hours there!
  • Take the time and visit this museum. It will broaden your perspective of the river that defines the region and those who have devoted their lives to a life on the river.
  • Definitely worth the visit. Interesting river, Navy, Coast Guard and steamship displays.
  • Learn about the Columbia River History. Well done displays.
  • Wow! This museum is worth the $10 admission. I could've stayed for HOURS. Too bad my 4 yr old could care less.
  • visit this museum its across the river
