“The standout thing to do in Astoria however is undoubtedly visiting the Columbia River Maritime Museum which lies along the waterfront. Set in a wonderful wave-shaped building, it offers up an interesting look into the city’s seafaring heritage and has innumerable artifacts and interactive exhibits for you to peruse. Since being founded in 1963, the museum has expanded considerably and now includes everything from maritime models and maps to figureheads, weapons, and a Fresnel Lens. In total, there are over 50,000 photos and objects to explore with informative displays documenting the history of fishing, exploring, and military maneuvers in the region. Besides watching a film in its theater or seeing some of its historic vessels, you can also take a tour around the Lightship Columbia which is anchored alongside the museum. Now a National Historic Landmark, it used to guide ships to safety at the mouth of the Columbia River which not for nothing is known as the ‘Graveyard of the Pacific’.”
