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!

The Fort Walla Walla Museum follows in the footsteps of the other Fort historic sites in Washington, such as Fort Vancouver and Fort Spokane. They have some great recreations of the historic buildings and some traveling exhibits that are presented in the main museum area. A few times a year they have some larger, living history events that are always... More

This is not like most small town museums that is something to see for an hour.. It is quite large with so much to see you could spend the whole day there. The exhibits are so well done and complete it is a joy to visit. James Payne, the director, does not cut corners anywhere and it shows. I had... More

As an adult, it was okay - but as a family activity it would be awesome! Many buildings to explore, cute gift shop & playground for children.

This local museum has multiple buildings, great displays, beautiful grounds, and original buildings transported to this site. Walla Walla has a long history in Washington State and this museum is terrific. We were amazed by how good it was and it occupied us for multiple hours.

We were part of a tour group that included this museum as part of our tour. We visited for about two hours and found it to be an excellent museum. The people working there were very helpful and worth speaking to for information. The Civil War exhibit was a surprise to me as I wouldn't have expected that in the... More
