A great place to learn about the history of the area with an emphasis on old farming methods and equipment, especially in the outlying buildings. The full size replica of the 13(?) mule team harvester is not to be missed. The current WWII exhibits brought that period to life. We also enjoyed talking with the volunteer staff who are very...

Wonderful museum. GREAT for kids. Be sure to check out the little cabins down below, as well as the doors that are somewhat hidden in the block wall, with wonderful old fashion exhibits.

We had kids with us and they loved it. Great old village and fun exhibits. Pretty impressive for a small town museum. Beautiful facility helpful staff. And a playground for young kids! We had a 2 and 5 year old and they loved it.

Excellent place to learn about early settlements in the Walla Walla area. The grounds have several buildings that have been properly restored to give visitors the full historical feel. Numerous pieces of agricultural equipment, wagons and tools of the time to teach new generations about American history. If it is summer time, go early, as it heats up and you... More

Four of us visited for a morning. The following were of real interest to all: the farm equipment, the women's apparel, and the collection of old children's toys and games.

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.

Took our 2 granddaughters (age 9 and 7) and they had a wonderful time seeing the Pioneer Village and the Military displays.

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.
