  • This a great place to visit in Newport! The museum is small and can probably be covered in about an hour, but there is a lot to learn and it is curated beautifully. They do a great job of covering Newport’s rich maritime history and the exhibit on commercial fisheries is great. We also enjoyed the art displays. I don’t think this is the best stop for young children, as it is largely informational (not very interactive). We enjoy taking visitors here, and as an added bonus, the building provides a beautiful view of the bay front.
  • Went to exhibit on the monks doing sand painting and was great, have seen before when lived in California. Wanted my husband to see it and he enjoyed it very much. Venue was beautiful and hosts were really nice. Would recommend this facility to anyone as it right across from waterfront and gift shop is really neat with all things nautical and about Oregon.
