A few weeks ago great friend of the site Matt sent us some great pictures of the Columbia River Maritime Museum in Astoria, OR.
This is definitely one of those places most of us will never get to see so thank you to Matt for sending these pics. For more information about the Columbia River Maritime Museum be sure to check out the link.

There are a lot of different exhibits about the history of the Columbia River...
A great display about the US Coast Guard
Some really cool displays of Coast Guard Cutters
A lot of stuff for kids to climb and play on...
Uses of the river today
Computer screen showing boats currently in the river
World War II Exhibits
Speaking of outside... Also included is a self guided tour of the light ship Columbia...
The Astoria-Megler bridge... Several movies have been filmed on it...
Over all I found CRMM a fun way to spend several hours learning about the importance of the Columbia River to the area. If anyone is in Astoria Oregon for a couple of days I would recommend a stop.
Thanks again to Matt for this great look at the Columbia River Museum. Always looking for fun touristy things to visit on our travels, we'll have to check this out if we ever make it up that way.
If you have any cool places you've been and would like to share it with us feel free to let us know. We'd love to feature it on the site. We'll even send you some swag. =)
