I've seen this place from the Oregon side of the Gorge since I was a kid but This was my first visit. It's Rodin collection was surprising but my favorite was the Native American art and cultural display. The displays range from Royal Russian and Romanian artifacts to modern sculptures and paintings.I'm happy I finally made the trip.

A friend told me about this museum, which she discovered while camping nearby, so I planned an overnight trip from Seattle to check it out and it did not disappoint in the least bit. It was fascinating to learn about Hill and how he influenced so many things in WA, but it was really interesting on how lives of the... More

We visit the museum several times a year. The building and grounds alone are worth the trip. Outstanding Native American and Rodin collections.

Outstanding museum in the middle of nowhere. Price of admission was very reasonable. Rodin collection and Theatre de la Mode were our favorites. Beautiful setting, so bring a picnic or eat at the onsite cafe. Sculpture garden outside was delightful.

I have friends that come from all over for the wealth of thing to do around the gorge and when we have a day of not hiking, biking or just searching around I ALWAYS bring them to the museum. It has such an array of interesting collections you just can't get bored. I'll be honest, I love the native American... More

The view is impressive, and I like to stop and enjoy the grounds. However, the addition detracts from the architecture of the original building. I will still stop there, but I probably won't enter the building.

Loved everything, the new wing looks a little goofy compared to the class of the original building but the content was awesome.

We drove past here on the way to the Dalles and came back the next day to visit. Vast grounds perfect for picnicking and a wide variety of art to peruse. The exhibits are vast and the narrative with each piece very well done. Everything ties together and forms a picture of the Hill's taste in art. Really nicely done... More
