Travel back in time with a visit to the Heritage Museum, one of the main history museums. Walk through the collection’s peaceful corridors and view the centuries-old artifacts on display.
The natural preserves surrounding Astoria give visitors an insight into the species of flora and fauna that flourish in the area. Go for a long walk in Fort Stevens State Park and enjoy an escape from the paved streets.
Read stories of brave sailors and fishermen in the Columbia River Maritime Museum, the primary maritime museum in the area. It's one of the most interesting museums in the area, so take the time to see the collected ship models and replicas from the region’s seafaring history.
