As a child we would drive on the Oregon side of the Columbia and I would look over at Maryhill Museum and wonder about what the building was about. That was more than 50 years ago. Last we I had a chance to see the museum and loved it. The grounds were beautiful, the story of Sam Hill enlightening and... More

A very interesting small museum with 80 Rodin works and a collection of Romanian Queen Marie, as well as rotating exhibits and a nicely landscaped sculpture garden. On your way from The Dalles, you can also visit a replica of Stonehenge and Maryhill has an adjacent winery with some nice wine tasting and gift shop.

We enjoyed the collection of chess sets - who knew there were so many different ways to depict the adversaries on a chess board! The Native American display and art were also highlights for us. Having left rainy Portland, wandering the grounds in the sun while viewing the Columbia River was magnificent.

This is truly a fine museum -- but small. I went there soon after a trip to Russia and the Romanian collection was stunning. There is also an amazing "chess set" collection in the basement. The view is spectacular.

This is a World Class Museum. Routinely exchanges displays (exhibit items) with place like the MET, Louve, Smithsonian. Has several Rodans that reside permantly at the Museum. Even if you never set foot in the Museum the grounds are worth the trip. Open from 15 March through 15 November. Hours 10 AM to 5 PM

The museum has some great works by Rodan, an amazing basket exhibit by Native Americans and some other exhibits you will not see elsewhere

The beautiful location of this museum alone is worth the trip. Maryhill is an excellent museum with quality exhibits, but without the crowds you find in larger cities. We'll definitely be visiting again.

Interestingly, Maryhill is as much a curiosity as it is a museum of fine arts. Nothing prepares you for the imposing structure, literally in the middle of nowhere, filled with priceless art and artefacts. We loved its majestic solitude on a remote bluff overlooking the river gorge. This palatial stone mansion, set high on a remote spot overlooking the Colombia... More
