Thanx to others reviews, hubby and i made a point to visit here, and so glad we did! For over two hours we viewed the many marvelous videos, read the many descriptions and found the museum stimulating and full of great info. Neither of us realized how wild the Columbia River can be, and the skilled bar and river pilots dangerous jobs. Just watching the films of "crossing the bar" were enough to make one appreciate the Coast Guard and these pilots.Definitely a wealth of interesting displays to entertain and inform adults and children. A MUST SEE!!!!

A definite stop if you are in Astoria. Lots of interesting history that our kids (8, 10, 12, 15) found interesting. I would rate this the number one thing to do in Astoria.

This was a well done small museum with a strong local flair, which gives a great overview of the fishing industry in Astoria and the importance of the river & bar pilots that take the freighters from the Pacific down the Columbia River. Worth the price of admission.
