Great displays indoors & out. Guided tours available. A nice little gift shop with books, posters, memorabilia relating to the Lewis & Clark Expedition. Huge trees in a forest that has not been logged. Informative, educational, everything we wanted or needed to know.

While in Astoria a visit to Fort Clatsop will be an interesting history lesson showing how the pioneers survived in this harsh climate. Take the time to have a guided tour by rangers to maximise the information

Dogs are allowed on all outside areas and trails. They are not allowed in the museum portion. The fort itself is so small that you can stand in the doorway and peek in.
