This beautiful old historical building is great for children and adults. Upstairs is local art, and historical bar and roulette table. Memorable and kind helpful clerk.

A good overview of the history of Astoria. I wished I lived close enough to see some of their upcoming exhibits. They sound interesting also.

Located in the old City Hall. What is there is interesting, but they have more space to fill to make it a fully functioning museum (in my opinion) and it does appear they are working on it.

This museum had lots of information on the history of Astoria. Especailly liked the complete historical bar on the second floor. It was really interesting to find out all the different things the building had been used for---a hospital, barracks, USO, and Maritime Museum. The building has an elevator to the second floor which is nice if you have problems with stairs.
