Oregon Maritime Center & Museum

The Sternwheeler tugboat Portland, used as a location for the movie Maverick, starring Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson, is the main attraction at the Oregon Maritime Center & Museum.
Located on the Willamette River, this steam-powered vessel was used solely to guide ocean-going ships in Portland Harbor and now houses the museum. Discover the ship models, photos, navigational instruments and museum store.

The Sternwheeler Portland is berthed at the Willamette River seawall in Gov. Tom McCall Waterfront Park (terminus of Southwest Pine Street).
