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

It's kinda off the beaten path, but well worth it. The museum is the former mansion of millionaire Sam Hill. Without Sam Hill, we probably wouldn't have Highway 97. It's gorgeous, surrounded by a picnic area as well. This museum has as much history as it does art. The lovely pieces from Queen Marie of Hungary, the theatre de la... More

The Rodin collection is worth the trip alone but there is so much more. Plan on staying longer to enjoy it to the max. We were rushed so we had to hit and miss a lot. The people were very pleasant and we were totally amazed.

My Wife and I both enjoyed seeing the various art exhibits at Maryhill, and were amazed by the gorgeous view of the Columbia River. Our favorite exhibit was the Chess Set Exhibit, however I also liked the American Indian Art. Both of also liked the Blown Glass Art exhibit. I recommend this Museum to anyone of any age. In fact...

This museum is surprisingly large with an interesting collection of artifacts and items from many different cultures. It is definitely worth a visit if you are traveling to or from Portland and especially if you're making a trip to the vineyard anyways!

My husband and I decided to revisit Maryhill. We visited a few years ago, primarily to see the Romanian icons. At the time, they were "traveling" to another location. We were so happy to see them this time around. We learned a lot about the building of the highway from the OPB video of Sam Hill. The view of the... More
