The museum features retrospectives on a number of topics relating to Astoria's history. At the time of the Goonies' adventure to find One-Eyed Willy's treasure, it is hosting an exhibit about "Pirates of the Pacific".
Behind the scenes
In real life, the Historical Museum is the Captain George Flavel House Museum, an old 19th century home converted into a museum about Victorian era life; it sits across Duane Street from the Oregon Film Museum (the Clatsop County Jail in The Goonies).
