Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum


Winter weather brings winter storms and the winter storms of the past brought many ships to ground along the coast of the Long Beach Peninsula. The Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum presents a special exhibition Graveyard of the Pacific: Dangerous Currents-Shifting Sands. The show coincides with the ship wreck season.
Historic artifacts, photographs, and first-person accounts from wrecks such as the Admiral Benson, the Alice, the Potrimpos, the Glenmorag, and over 20 more ships will be featured in the exhibition. In addition, The U.S. Life Saving Service, U.S. Coast Guard and volunteer rescue units who have risked and sometimes given their lives to saving victims of maritime accidents will be highlighted.
