The Columbia River Maritime Museum specializes in collecting and exhibiting maritime artifacts from the Columbia River and the Pacific Northwest. The Museum’s collection, made up of artifacts collected since its opening, has grown to more than 30,000 objects, 20,000 photographs, and a 10,000-volume research library. Combined, these resources make the Columbia River Maritime Museum one of the foremost repositories of Pacific Northwest maritime artifacts in the country.
The Columbia River Maritime Museum accepts the donation of artifacts to the collection on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration the object’s relevance to the mission of the Museum, its space and preservation requirements and other factors. If you have something you would like to donate, please contact the curator to consider your gift.
