From 1 to 4 p.m. on Father's Day, dads will get in free to the Columbia River Maritime Museum when accompanied by their children.

Start your visit by visiting the Ford Room, where dads and kids can make their own tugboat to take home. Watch a video featuring tugboats and the many jobs they perform. Take the controls of the tugboat in the Great Hall and imagine you are the skipper heading for the locks. Walk outside and see the tugboat Tiger tied up at the 17th Street dock. Take a closer look at one of the workhorses of the Columbia River. Foss Maritime owns the Tiger and enthusiastically agreed to partner with the museum for this event.

Located at 1792 Marine Drive, the museum is open 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission fees are $8 for adults, $7 for seniors 65 and older and $4 for youth. Children 5 and younger are free. Admission is always free for members.
