Garibaldi Museum, Garibaldi

The Garibaldi Museum is nestled between the base of Captain Robert Gray Mountain and the Tillamook Bay in Garibaldi, Oregon. The museum is chartered to preserve the maritime heritage of the Pacific Northwest by collecting information concerning Captain Robert Gray and Captain Robert Gray's historical vessels, the Lady Washington and the Columbia Rediviva.

The museum displays the 18th century sailing world by telling the story of Captain Robert Gray and the trade with native Americans of the Pacific Northwest.

Among the museum displays are models of the Columbia and Lady Washington, an eight foot tall reproduction of the Columbia's figurehead, a half model of the Columbia showing how the ship was provisioned for the long voyage, as well as reproductions of the clothing of the seafarers and musical instruments.
