For the remainder of the month of December, children age 12 and under will be admitted for free to the Pacific Maritime & Heritage Center with a paid adult admission or a adult member
The Maritime Center offers a children’s discovery area where young ones can get up close and personal with our “hands on history” interactive exhibit. They can even make their own exhibit, explore photos and maps, and try on vintage clothing. Touching is very much encouraged in the hands on area.
Normally, children’s admission is $3.00. Adults and children alike can also take in the new “Making Waves” surfing exhibit and “Yaquina,” a retrospective exhibit of Michael Gibbons paintings of the Yaquina Bay estuary.
The Pacific Maritime & Heritage Center is open Thursday through Sunday, 11:00 am – 4:00 pm, and is located at 333 SE Bay Blvd on Newport’s Historic Bayfront. Closed Christmas Day. For more information, call 541-265-7509.
