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

This museum has so much to see, a lot of it really big, like life sized 30 mule teams, they have several buildings to house it all in, there is also a "Pioneer" village with original cabins and buildings that are fully furnished with items from the period. There is also a wonderful gift shop.

This stop is enjoyable for adults and children. Displays are varied and well done. A gathering of historic buildings creates a small "town" as part of the museum. The docents are very friendly and helpful and it is great to hear their stories of growing up in the area. Amazing farm equipment of the past is takes up a couple... More

This museum gives you a very good feel for the early history of Walla Walla both through indoor traditional exhibits and outdoor monuments and actual artifacts. It is well laid out and easy to read and understand. The outdoor trails lead you up a hill to a sweeping view and a memorial to all who died at this site. This... More

Biggest issue with tour is there are a lot of exhibits about the town and it's history, but no fort. They have had at least three in the area, exhibits focused more on farmers and settlers history. Would not return.

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
