My husband loves Maritime Museums and I am usually bored through most of them but this one is outstanding. The exhibits are fantastic and range from the discovery of the area to current day. They are all educational in the very best way. I live in Maine and there are several areas along our rocky coast that are dangerous but nothing like the area where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean. The number of ship wrecks in that area was astounding and the stories of some of them were riveting. I didn't know why this area was so dangerous, but now I do and I have a whole new respect for the people that navigate this area and for the first responders who try to save the lives of those that get in trouble. If you are in the area of Astoria, OR and think that this is just another "ho hum museum", think again because it is an experience and one that shouldn't be missed.
