Columbia River Maritime Museum

The mouth of the Columbia River is renowned for being one of the most dangerous passages in the entire world. From the tragically lost lives and lost boats to its critical economic and environmental impact, you’ll learn why the Columbia River Bar is both revered and feared.

Astoria’s Oregon Film Museum

Astoria’s Oregon Film Museum celebrates the legacy of film-making in the beautiful State of Oregon. Beginning in 1908 with The Fisherman’s Bride to modern-day shows like Portlandia and Pretty Little Liars, Oregon is a favorite area to shoot films, shows, and commercials. Fans of the Goonies still celebrate the movie every year in all kinds of eccentric ways, and the OFM highlights all the quirkiness and mainstream aspects that make Oregon so fun. If you’re in the Astoria area, make sure you check it out!

Clatsop County Historical Society Heritage Museum

Dating back to 1904, the building originally was Astoria’s City Hall. Now home to the Clatsop County Historical Society’s Heritage Museum, guests enjoy exploring the intriguing history of Clatsop County. With both temporary and permanent exhibits featuring early pioneers, Native Americans, famous immigrants, and much more, the museum is educational and fun.

Captain George Flavel House Museum

If you’re in the Longview area, you can experience the elegance of the Captain George Flavel House Museum. Built during the late Victorian period, this Queen Anne home showcases original Eastlake influenced woodwork, antique furnishings, and exotic hardwood mantels and trims.
