We were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed this museum. We only went here because it was part of a three museum pass that we purchased, but we are certainly glad we did. Lots of exhibits and history for this interesting town, from the time Native Americans were the only occupants in the area and an example of their... 更多
We thought the museum was interesting and worth the admission. We are interested in history, but I am sure some people would be interested in their wall of the bawdy part of town in their early years. Good overall history of the bridge a well.
I spent part of an hour going through the Heritage Museum. The house was interesting as it was built in 1904. The museum has a decent depiction of native life in the area before the arrival of the white man. I particularly found the second floor exhibit on the funding and construction of the Astoria-Megler Bridge and the role that... 更多
This is an interesting place for history buffs. The exhibits include the natives before any british settlement, the life in the first settlement, history of the astoria bridge, etc.

Good for a rainy-day visit. Elevator to take you upstairs if you need it. Local history museum with some displays that would be interesting for families. Work is being done on the street outside, so parking is limited.
This is a converted house with five separate sections - Native American, John Jacob Astor, the Chinese Community on the ground floor, and the Astor Bridge and a Saloon Bar on the upper floor. It cost $4 as a senior and was fine to wander around on a rainy day.
1. The full significance of the history of Astoria is that without John Jacob Astor's remarkable venture, the United States of America may well not have extended to the coast of Oregon and Washington. Astoria is important to the entire United States. 2. Many different areas of interest, beyond the original fur trading venture, are included -- the significance of... 更多
