A beautiful building with many interactive and video displays. Actual Coast Guard boats and fishing boats as well as endless artifacts. Gives a great view of the area, its history and development.

History about the fishing industry, the establishment of the town, the Columbia River bar - and the coast guard vigilance to keep all safe there... and so much more

This museum really brings home what is not obvious to the casual observer. After going through here you will feel the urge to drive a few miles west to see where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean to see why this passageway is so special

We had no idea how great this museum is. They start with a short movie about crossing the bar. We were so impressed with the Coast Guard and their bravery. There are special pilots that board the ships to help them get through the turbulent waters! Loved the history.
