Located in the small fishing town of Garibaldi, the Garibaldi Museum is dedicated to the maritime history of the area and collecting information concerning Captain Robert Gray his historical vessels, the Lady Washington and the Columbia Rediviva.

The second floor is devoted to the story of the discovery of the Columbia River in 1792 by an American captain, Robert Gray.  His mention of this discovery was the catalyst that ultimately inspired President Jefferson to send Lewis and Clark off on their now famous expedition, culminating in the discovery of the Columbia River meeting the Pacific Ocean, in 1805.
