Oregon Maritime Museum, Portland
Even if you miss the opportunity for a cruise on your visit, you can still have a great time looking at the exhibits of Portland and Oregon maritime history – especially on the docent-guided tour from pilot house to engine room and just about everywhere in between. The staff are very friendly, and you should try swapping sea stories with them.
There is even a little gift shop where you can buy various trinkets, clothing, etc., as well as some interesting books on the region's maritime history. Overall, you can easily spend over an hour here (the tour itself last 45 minutes or so) – and don't forget to visit the USS Oregon main mast in the adjacent park as well.
