Oregon Maritime Museum

Oregon Maritime Museum Review

Local model makers created most of this museum's models of ships that once plied the Columbia River. Contained within the stern-wheeler steamship Portland, this small museum provides an excellent overview of Oregon's maritime history with artifacts and memorabilia. The Children's Room has nautical items that can be touched and oeprated. The Portland was the last steam-powered stern-wheeler operating in the United States, and volunteer-guided tours include the pilot house and engine room.
