This place was so cool! From the scenery down to the uniforms and machines used during the time this place was running. Can`t forget the bathroom walls, they have all kinds of writing and you can write your own thoughts on them. The coffee shop...More

A wet and rainy day drove us into here, and we enjoyed every minute, interesting displays and lots of information here. The seafood season starts very soon here, so this place will come alive with fresh stocks to choose from. The river views are fantastic,...More

This museum is a tad bit beaten up (graffiti on some of the write-ups, no guide anywhere in sight, small things) but it's pretty fun and there's lots of interesting things to marvel at. Definitely worth a stop in but don't expect it to be...More

This is an interesting place to visit. We learned about the history of seafood canning in Astoria. When you visit also try the Coffee Girl coffee shop also on the pier.

We had a quick late lunch at Rogue. When I walked to the bathroom (a long walk), I found the museum! I was so excited to go through it after our meal. What a cool educational experience. I love all the photos and videos.
