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

This place is awesome. Life-sized replicas of mule-teams and horses (I would think this would be pretty cool for kids), an historic village to walk through - truly a wonderful museum experience.

This is one of the best museum I've visited I understand that it has expanded quite a bit. Historical pictures to match the displays brought them to life. 5 buildings with period yard/farm/transportation equipment and a pioneer village to walk through kept everyone interested. They also do reenactments but we weren't there during that time

This is a very modest museum with some Indian and U.S. Cavalry artifacts. Fort Walla Walla was established in the 1850s in what was then Indian territory being settled by white pioneers. The conflicts that ensued took many lives and the graveyard near the museum documents the U.S. Cavalry men who fell in battles with the Indians in the 1870s.... More

A nice afternoon learning experience about the area. The is very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of Walla Walla. The restored buildings in lower park gave you an idea of life was like in pioneer days. A good inexpensive way to spend a beautiful afternoon.
