Nestled between the base of Captain Robert Gray Mountain and Tillamook Bay, the Museum is dedicated to preserving the maritime heritage of the Pacific Northwest by collecting information concerning Captain Gray and his historic vessels, the Lady Washington and the Columbia Rediviva. Displayed are models of the ships, an eight-foot tall reproduction of the Columbia’s figure head, a half model of the Columbia showing how the ship was provisioned for long voyage, as well as reproductions of clothing of seafarers and musical instruments.

More Info

Cared for by the Garibaldi Cultural Heritage Initiative, this historic boathouse built in 1936 was used as a Coast Guard life-saving station to help ships and fishing boats in Tillamook Bay. The boathouse, undergoing a preservation effort, has a gallery of historic interpretive signage and photos, and offers a unique venue for special events. It is one of the most photographed buildings on the Oregon Coast, thanks to its long boardwalk pier where people cast fishing lines and crab pots.
