“A Walk Through History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Fort Walla Walla Museum is a wonderful "walk" through Walla Walla history. There is so much more to Walla Walla than the wineries. Walla Walla has a rich history that has contributed to it becoming the amazing little city that it is today.

Visit the Fort for a relaxing adventure through time. You will undoubtedly learn something new and see things you've never seen before.

Some exhibits remain the same time after time and others are changed out so you never know just what will be in store.

Pack a picnic and enjoy it on the beautiful grounds. You won't be disappointed.

“If you love history this will be awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The museum at Fort Walla Walla is a fun place to take kids who are elementary school age and like to learn. You should check for special presentations that they occasionally do to make it more interesting.

“A trip back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Fort Walla Walla Museum along with the Whitman Mission will give you insight to the history of this wonderful valley. Lewis and Clark passed through the area on their Voyage of Discovery. Missionaries Marcus and Narcissa Whitman settled in what is known as the Whitman Mission massacre. In early 1860 the city of Walla Walla was the largest city in Washington Territory, and the staging area for the gold miners who were working the gold fields of Idaho. Several of the farm displays were actually used in this valley by families who are still farming the same ground today. My family had moved to this valley in the 1890's.
