We stopped here not for the museum, but for the view and the sculpture grounds. The view was spectacular and the sculpture was interesting. Clearly many donors have paid great sums for the work here. Unfortunately the museum trust is not keeping up its responsibility to maintain. Signs fallen down, shabby garden beds, and general poor maintenance are apparent.

This unexpected treasure has outstanding curation of the best Native American collection I have ever seen. Not only that, there is a wonderful collection of Rodin sculpture. The setting is wonderful, the cafe excellent and the views are unparalleled. It is a don't miss type of place

We visited the Maryhill Museum to view the glass art of Raven Skyriver, whose work was being featured. We were delighted to learn about Sam Hill, whose home overlooking the Columbia River, became the Maryhill Museum. There is an informative short film about Sam and all that he accomplished in his life. We have Sam to thank for building roads... More

This museum is truly one of my favorite places on earth. The setting, with the remarkable building perched on a cliff overlooking the mighty Columbia River, is unparalleled. There are a huge number of exhibits, all enchanting. There is so much to see and enjoy, inside and out, that I hate leaving and am always excited to make a return... More

Lovely collection of artifacts and art. When I was there The Theatre de la Mode was on display. It was beautiful and strangely haunting. The museum also has a collection of chess boards, Native American artifacts, and a wonderful collection of Rodin sculpture. Take you time and walk through each section of the museum. The grounds are well kept and... More

Begin with the movie about creator Sam Hill, whose life was amazing in and of itself. Each room at Maryhill Museum is as fascinating as the building that houses it, with extensive contributions from Queen Maria, grand daughter of Queen Victoria, married to King Ferdinand of Romania, to the wing dedicated to the Sculptor August Rodin, to another filled with...

Wow. This place totally took us by surprise. We planned for a quick local "museum" stop. We easily could have spent more than the 2 hours we were there. One of the most beautiful collections of art and history I have ever seen!

This is an attractive museum with art, photographs and sculpture. There is plenty of free parking. The museum sits on a hil overlooking the Columbia River. You may want to couple a visit to this Museum with a visit to the nearby Maryhill Winery. Together, they make a nice outing.

My sister made this a day trip from Portland when I was visiting her. It's a beautiful drive of about 1/1/2 hrs there with the amazing changing topography of the land, the beautiful Columbia River, the surprising wine country and what a treat when we arrived. It's always amazing to realize the visions our forefathers had. There is an informative... More
