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. There are extensive restored farm implements (including a mule-powered thresher), late 1800's dresses, china, hand tools; everything a... More

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.

If you want to learn massive amounts of history with physical objects and items that help you build mental pictures this place is the place to go! It is great for all ages, I have been going since I was 3 and I'm almost 17 and still enjoy it! They add things, change it up, and sometimes they have reenactments... More

This museum is open almost every day of the year. It is very interesting because it contains historic buildings that you can visit and see how people lived. The museum this trip contained an excellent Civil War exhibit. The West usually doesn't have great artifacts. This museum took a look at the Officers in the Civil War that served in... More

The Fort Walla Walla Museum was a real surprise! The Civil War historical artifacts were interesting and complete. But the real dazzler was the early farming equipment displays in the annex buildings. The little pioneer village cottages were very complete and authentic too.

We visited Washington & Oregon in part to familiarise ourselves with the Plateau Indians as opposed to the more well known Plains Indians. Research indicated good museums to see were; The Wanapum Cultural Heritage Museum near Vantage, which covers the Wanapum Indians who never signed a peace treaty. This is small but very well put together, viewed from an Indian... More

Unexpected display of early farming equipment and audio visuals of historic farming practices. Also has a pioneer settlement with living history programs. As expected, there are historic photos and artifacts of the fort's soldiers, area pioneers, and area native americans. Some gems you can easily miss: 1) nature trail through walnut trees - rest a bit on some shaded benches,... More
