Watching the keeper feed the giant western squid was superb. I have never seen anything like it seeing the squid wrap its arms around the keepers arms and watch the keeper gently put off the suckers one by one while freeing herself was astounding.

Went to exhibit on the monks doing sand painting and was great, have seen before when lived in California. Wanted my husband to see it and he enjoyed it very much. Venue was beautiful and hosts were really nice. Would recommend this facility to anyone as it right across from waterfront and gift shop is really neat with all things nautical and about Oregon.
Very interesting! Gifts, history, and more, open from Thursday through Sunday until 4pm. Very interesting Maritime artifacts and historical photos.
Very enjoyable. The Diane O’Leary art exhibit was exceptional.
A very comprehensive curation of maritime history.
