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

Stop by the Maryhill Museum of Art and I assure you that you will be amazed. Your first marvel will be your first glimpse of the mansion as it sits atop the hill looking so out of place. Second surprise is as you drive in the driveway and see the lovely grounds filled with sculptures and amazing views of the... More

Maryhill isn't exactly in the middle of nowhere anymore; it's in the middle of wine country. But when it was built, with its superb vantage point overlooking the bluffs of the Columbia River, it was truly remote. Some exceptional people helped the museum get birthed, and they are all in evidence here. Sam Hill built the mansion as his own... More

What a great treat to be found in the middle of nowhere. We stopped there to have a bite to eat but also to take a look. Great small collections from places you would never imagine. The cafeteria food was fabulous, their salads and sandwiches, yummy. People were incredibly nice and their store had a few items that were quite... More
