The limited space had a lot of great history. Nice place to view and take in when visiting the area. It show cases Early Americana and other artifacts that were brought to the North West by immigrants.

What a lovely old amazing Hotel. Impeccable service. We stayed in the Luxury Tower Suite for 3 days and it was worth it. Super cozy King bed, nice sitting room space, very spacious bathroom.

The paintings of the Whitmans and their missionary work in the early 1800's gives a great overview, especially if you don't have time to take in the nearby National Historic Site.

While the hangings are by noted artist David Manuel, he did not gain his fame painting but rather through bronze sculpture. The works are from very early in his career and depict the 1847 tragedy at Whitman Mission. The work is flat and rudimentary. The hotel is great, the dining lovely, but this is easily avoidable.

Really enjoyed this group of paintings displayed in chronically order depicting the lives of the man and his wife for whom the hotel is named. I really enjoyed this overview.

The second floor exhibit gives a good history of the Marcus Whitman family, which was unknown to us.

interesting artwork located in the historical Whitman Hotel. Gives a historical overview of what happened at the Whitman Mission, which is another interesting place to visit in the area.

Wonderful art gallery on the second floor of Marcus Whitman hotel telling the tragic story of Whitmans in 35 colorful, and somewhat graphic detail. Not really an exhibit for small children. Not a happy ending for the Whitmans.

On the 2nd floor there is an amazing art collection depicting the Whitman massacre. What a profound story.
