You can see the Columbia River far below, heaving and flowing its way toward the 90-mile distant Portland metro area and beyond. Across the river and all around you spread the high prairie and its bluffs, golden against the wide blue cloudless sky. And there at your back rises this strange museum, originally built by a Pacific Northwest magnate as... More

On our way to Oregon we stopped at the museum which is along the Columbia. The scenery is amazing. You don't even have to go inside to enjoy the grounds. Simply amazing.

What a lovely museum in the middle of nowhere. An impressive Rodin sculpture and drawing collection, along with a great selection of Russian iconography, lovely paintings, sculptures and mini theater collection. Definitely not to be mi.ssed.

Their is a great collection of modern Native American art that I don't know where you could see anywhere else. Their are lots of Native American artifacts, in an old fashioned presentation. They have a collection of chess sets... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the exhibits at this museum. The Native-American baskets/utilitarian items were well displayed. Also, the Native-American paintings were great. Doll collection was interesting as well. Exhibits change as does the scenery and Columbia River change with the weather and seasons. Unbelievable views of the Columbia River. Well worth the visit.

The Maryhill Museum of Art in Goldendale, Washington is well worth the trip from Portland OR. or Vancouver, Washington. This location overlooking the river and gorge is as nice as that can be found. The Exhibits change over time and very interesting.

At Maryhill Museum you will find multiple exhibits: Native American artifacts, Theatre de la Mode, Chess sets etc. But you will also find the exhibits talking about Queen Marie of Romania, Loie Fuller, Auguste Rodin, and Samuel Hill (founder of the museum.) At first, these four don't seem connected. But Sam Hill donated money to Queen Marie of Romania during... More

We loved the Rodin exhibit, but the building itself is worth the trip. We also enjoyed lunch on the terrace, overlooking the Gorge. They had a gluten-free bread option.
