I took my young teenage nieces here. We all enjoyed wandering through the museum and grounds. The buildings depict life in the early days of Walla Walla.

The exhibits are organized in five separate exhibit halls. Many of them are about the agriculture of the Walla Walla area and explain the different farming techniques used over the years, There is also a village with houses and other buildings including a school house from the late 1800's and early 1900's moved to the site. Well worth the time... More

I have visited this facility many times, and they do a truly GREAT job of collecting, displaying and explaining the many historical venues they have at this first class facility. There is something for everyone, with a very knowledgeable and friendly staff. David

This is a really interesting exhibit showing the post-Civil War life of people in the western WA region, including some material from Lewis and Clark, as well as the founding fathers of Walla Walla and their relationship with the surrounding Native Americans.

Fun time at the Fort. Learned a lot about the early wheat agriculture of the area. Staff were very friendly. The Pioneer Village was special with the reinactments there. We especially like the Buffalo Soldiers with their horses.

A good museum to visit especially during there museum days. A lot of history and things to see. Most displays are in buildings so you could go on a rainy day.
