This us a great place to visit and get a real feel of our country when 1st founded. The history on display has the ability to put you in the Pioneer's place and feel what they felt, see the hardships and share the joy they felt as they traveled and discovered new beginnings

This is a great place to visit, with plenty of local history. Walking through the buildings and seeing how things used to be and seeing living history re-enactments is one of the best ways to learn about the past. Highly recommend!

The kids rolled their eyes when I parked the car here but they ended up having a great time, as did I. The multiple exhibits were well put together, documented appropriately, and germane to the local area. We especially liked the Walla Walla prison stuff. The historical buildings outside were also great fun, I wish they had been open for... More

What a great museum of Walla Walla history. There are five buildings full of amazing things from wedding dresses to combines and mules. Well organized. Loved the pioneer village. Even a golf cart with a volunteer to give a family member with mobility issues to the Pioneer Village. Loved the whole place!!

This was so good, we went on our own without the family, so we could take our time and look thoroughly at everything. Went on 1st April, so they had a quiz for Fools day, and we both won! Lovely welcoming and friendly staff and lots to see. Could have used a place to sit with a coffee though.

We had a little trouble finding the entrance to this museum, but we were very glad we did. An amazing set of exhibits that chronicled the history of Walla Walla, not just the fort itself. What was actually the most impressive was all the agricultural equipment available to see close up. Don't miss the giant combine! It is well curated,... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find the museum open on Sunday. Lucky for us! It contains an extensive collection of exhibits for the area and also an attractive collection of buildings that have been brought in from around the area. The gift shop has kits and books that are very appropriate and interesting. We enjoyed our afternoon here.

This museum was the most amazing surprise! These folks have put together a remarkable collection artifacts to include many old farm implements and tools, wagons, combines...unbelievable! Also some lovely out buildings outfitted with furnishings of the period. Really...don't miss this museum!! The people are friendly and knowledgeable. We spent several hours enjoying this great spot!
