Although I am not a history or war enthusiast I enjoyed the hour and a half we spent at this low cost expansive museum. To get in, you drive up the area that looks like a back entrance. We entered down hill where the cemetery is and it is a hike to get up to the museum. Although not entirely... More

We've been to Walla Walla for Spring Barrel Release for many years running and finally got around to getting to the museum. It was small but wonderful. They've done a great job of gathering artifacts and telling the story of people in the area over the centuries. And actually the size is perfect for squeezing in a trip between wine... More

Fun place to see and find that it was near the end of the Lewis and Clark Trail. Certainly worth finding the off the beaten path spot!

This is a nice little spot with some history to take a break and have a picnic! If you have more time, see what performance might be available at the amphitheater.

This is clearly run by a well-meaning bunch of folks, but the permanent exhibits are out of the 1950s and there is virtually NO interpretation, merely "here is a tractor." kind of labeling. The special exhibit on the two World Wars in Walla Walla was a nice bunch of dresses and uniforms, but said nothing about how the wars affected... More

This is a large rambling museum with exhibits outside and in. If you have children I would recommend starting outside in the "village" which is the opposite of the map. Then go to the small outbuildings and end up in the main building which is a lot of reading.

The museum is set up like a small village, with little houses, the blacksmith, schoolroom, etc. Most amazing of all was the life-size replica of a threshing machine pulled by a team of 33 mules.

This museum is three-in-one. There is a modern building, with a/c and nice restrooms, a lovely gift shop and displays. Then there are a series of buildings (that do not have a/c) with large displays. On a lower level (shaded by trees) is a "village" with docents dressed in period costumes explaining what you are seeing. Everything was interesting and... More

My husband and I needed a diversion from all the wine tasting. Based on the reviews, we went here. What a fun surprise! Even my husband was in to some of the exhibits! We especially enjoyed the pioneer village and antique vehicles/wagons. I enjoyed the textile exhibit which included some antique dresses and stories behind the owners. The military exhibit... More

Recently my wife and I visited the Fort Walla Walla Museum to do some research on one of my ancestors who was stationed there when it was an active Army Calvary Post. I had made prior arrangements with a lady who I believe was in charge of the library for my visit only to find when we arrived that she... More
