Studying, Preparing for Disaster

The Museum will offer many activities focused on earthquake and tsunami education. Utilizing the most recent scientific research, students from Astoria High School will be leading activities to explain what causes earthquakes. Large maps will be displayed depicting geographic areas that would be affected should the Pacific Northwest experience an earthquake or tsunami.

Museum hours are 9:30 am - 5:00 pm daily.  The SHARKS 3D movie is free for members.
