It was impressive from a historical standpoint. The main floor is dedicated to the former Queen of Romania, one floor is area Native Americans and one floor is about the owners actor's daughter's career as an actress/dancer.

A beautiful setting in the Gorge, overlooking the river. If you have not been to the museum, you are in for a treat. It is very calm, and visitors can see all the paintings during a stay at the museum - we were there for about 2 hrs. Then have lunch at the bistro. There is outside seating, and also... More

Maryhill Museum is on the bluffs above the Columbia River. The grounds are free and it is a perfect place to stop and picnic. The building itself is a beautiful structure that Sam Hill a Quaker and rich businessman built it intending it to be their home. The collection is expansive and contains everything from Rodin to American Indian art.... More

Everything about this museum is different from the run of the mill art museum. The location, on the Columbia River, on beautiful grounds, is stunning. The drive to get to the location is breathtaking. The museum is eclectic and just plain fun. From the beautiful crowns of Romanian royalty to the tiny fashion dolls from France, it is truly unusual.... More

This is an excellent Museum. A bit off the beaten trail, but well worth the drive - native basket and misc. items were incredible.

The traveling Native American exhibit (ends November 15) is fabulous. We used the Sage Library disk, available at members of the Sage system, allowing us free entry; we made a donation, anyway because it is such a good cause.

Doesn't look like this place would be so GREAT but turned out to be amazing and so very interesting. The history behind this place is interesting and very nicely presented. Great things on display. Great history learned. Recommended highly from someone who has been to way-to-many museums but glad I went to this one, for sure.

If you've been reading the reviews about this place, the repeated remark about 'out in the middle of nowhere' is so true. The building is gorgeous and the surrounding views are divine. To me, the outside was more interesting than the art inside. I was so happy to finally have been able to visit this beautiful place.
