The is one of the nicest little Museums I have ever been to. Well put together and done. I enjoyed it very much, they even have a play area for children where they can dress up like pirates.

What a delightful surprise this museum was, on a rainy summer day in Oregon. It covers a lot of areas related to Garibaldi: sailing/ships/shipwrecks, lumber, fishing, Coastal Indians, guns. There are exhibits on WWII in the area and vintage videos. I enjoyed the display and text about ships' figureheads.
An entire room is dedicated to the Captain Robert Gray, unsung and noteworthy explorer of the Columbia River - before Vancouver or Lewis&Clark. What an interesting life he had!
For the children, there are videos and a chance to dress up in settler or ship clothing, create a wooden basket, or see how the natives carved canoes from a single tree.
The gift shop has tasteful, unusual and well-priced items for all ages; the staff was very friendly and helpful.

For anyone interested in the history of the Columbia River, this is the place to visit. My husband and I were enthralled with the exhibits and the history of Capt. Robert Gray. A must see
