  • Great museum with very reasonable pricing! Kids are only $5 and up to age 17 is considered a kid! We have been multiple times over the years and our whole family loves it. If you're interested in fishing, history, the Coast Guard, or the Oregon Coast, this museum is something you won't want to miss.
  • My family and I had such a great experience here. My son loved the experience and loved all the boats, ships and everything about the military! He especially loved the 25min aircraft 3d carrier movie. We'd totally go there again!
