Really enjoyed the historical significance that Ft Walla Walla brought to the area. The support of the community made this museum much more enjoyable than your average museum. The fee was reasonable and the people helpful as we ventured around. Really learned a lot about the history and culture of this area.

Walla Walla is not a big town but its history is so well represented at this museum that you will leave with a true sense of yesterday. Be sure to stroll through the pioneer cemetery while you're there.

Great museum. The community has really come together donating items. This is a wonderful history of the town,WW I and II as well as the farming history. You must check out the 33 mule team pulling the combine. It will mot disappoint.

Extensive museum with regional exhibits, including relocated log cabins, Lewis and Clark, as well as differentiating between the two Fort Walla Wallas: military and trading post. Extensive gift shop. Several volunteers stationed throughout to offer assistance and information to visitors. Especially enjoyed finding the "hidden" items in the Lewis and Clark diorama. Tended to miss the complete display without the... More

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
