This is a wonderful place to go. We enjoyed it a lot. This is no small place. It will take you a few hours to walk through. I really enjoy seeing how the pioneers lived and the things they went through. They even had a women dressed as a pioneer doing a re-enactment. Well worth the money.

Gift shop has a nice assortment of local made Walla Walla sweet Onion Mustards. We sampled them all and picked the one flavored with bacon and the other with red pepper...absolutely delicious! The museum admission was expensive and since we didn't have enough time to see it all we decided not to go in.

At this time, the museum is presenting a World War II display that is amazing! The exhibit has lots of personal memorabilia and information on the men AND women that served. It was awe inspiring and well worth your time.

It's not high-tech to be sure but does offer a lot of information. Seems to have been lovingly created.

We had a wonderful time exploring the history of Walla Walla. The many exhibits tell the stories of the area from the settlers to WW II. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. This museum is a wonderful tribute to our heritage.

This is a private museum with enthusiastic volunteers. There are multiple small buildings with exhibits. This is a nice and tranquil way to learn the history of this area.
