The Greater Astoria Historical Society offers a variety of educational experiences for people of all ages. From Steinway Pianos and 200 year old millstones to art galleries and waterfront parks, there are many ways your class can enjoy learning about history.
The Greater Astoria Historical Society staff offers on-site and off-site presentations about a variety of topics related to both local histories as well as broader historical topics. You are also invited to request presentations on specific topics, and our staff would be happy to create the presentation specifically for your group or event. Presentations are usually about 45 minutes to one hour but can be adjusted by request.
