- We spent a lot of time in the Manhattan project history part of the museum. It was fascinating and covers a lot of detail that we had never seen before. The historical part about the geology of the area was also very good. There is a walk in back with some animal sculptures. However the most interesting part of the outside is the trailer used by Manhattan project workersWritten September 25, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Prior to a trip from Washington State to Montana to visit our son & his family, I searched Trip Advisor for things to do along along the 3 routes we were offered by our map app. This type of attraction was very popular during my youth. This was the winner: Hands down. Everything & everyone there was wonderful. Molly as a standout. I needed some extra help and she went above & beyond to assist me.
The cost of a single ride is quite modest when you consider its duration and the grandiose scale of everything. Discounts are given for multiple coin quantities in one purchase.
My son & his family will be visiting us at summer's end. I am going to try to persuade him to stop along the way to allow our 2 year old granddaughter to experience this wonderful place. May it keep pleasing people for generations to come.Written July 10, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This was my first time here am we took our boys (dogs) they just had a blast an ran along the river. We went during the sunset an it was just beautiful!Written March 2, 2023
- Howard Amon is Richland's primary riverfront park and is the best quality riverfront park in the TC area. It is well maintained and has decent amenities. In the summer, you will find cookouts, swimmers, and water sports. The trail along the riverfront extends beyond the park and is great for walkers, runners, or bikers. Recently and unfortunately, the river has experienced a toxic algae situation. Keep an eye on river conditions before letting dogs near the water. This is something that is unavoidable, but the park is quite beautiful otherwise. Check it out.Written February 13, 2022
- The park is lovely with a view of the river. The Interpretive center formerly, called the museum, is well done and organized. Bring the kids and they can explore the interactive displays. We found the staff were able to answer all our questions.Written July 4, 2021
- What a great experience. We were in town for the afternoon and wanted to ride along the river on e-bikes. The store location is perfect. After a quick checkout we were on the river trail.
The river trail is beautiful. We rode about 15 miles and thoroughly enjoyed it.
A nice bonus was the helmets they provided. They were connected by Bluetooth so we didn’t have to yell at each other. Such a nice touch.
The e-bikes were nice. Plenty of power and you can pedal when you want and throttle when you don’t.
The staff was excellent. Friendly and they made sure everything was set up before we left.Written June 1, 2023
- The outside pools are really moving and alongside the new tower give a real sense of the size of what happened. The exhibition inside is spacious and well presented. It was appropriate for our kids who we felt needed to understand the event. There is a separate 45 minute site inside which it recommends kids stay away from with more detail about the attacks themselves. Decent value and we booked tickets online as we stood in the queue to save time.Written August 5, 2022
- My wife and I went to the winery on a whim late in the afternoon. It was our first experience visiting a winery in the U.S.. We were so happy we made the choice. Because of the issues related to COVID-19 we were seated on the patio, offered a glass of their award winning Sangiovese Rose and charcuterie plate. We couldn’t have been treated better. We selected several of their Private reserve wines to taste and ultimately purchase. We are now participants in their wine club. We will certainly look forward to our quarterly wine deliveries. Especially we would like to thank the gentleman who served us and made the tastings so informative. He made us feel special, even though I was dressed very casually ( bib overalls ). Overall a “perfect” experience!Written August 3, 2020
- This was really cool! We were looking for something to do in the tri-cities on a really hot day. The place was empty and we got to play with all the exhibits. We spent 1.5 hours and really read all the explanations and did all the hands on physics activities. Some of the explanations were necessary to read through twice for clarity but it was super fun. The best was a tie between seeing the waves in a guitar string and the giant slinky! Super glad we took the short trip out there.Written June 29, 2023
- Many trail options to hike this mountain! Well maintained and could see many wildflowers. Popular with locals, so, at times, can get quite busy, still plenty of space to enjoy your little piece of quiet.Written June 18, 2020
- Visited this winery while on trip with my two sisters. Went after a round of golf and this winery came up. Went in a it is really nice inside, but the grounds around it are spectacular. Beautiful gardens. Games to play outside. The wine was very good each of us had a different kind and shared. I had the Malbec, we all liked it ordered a second glass along with a cheese plate. Would highly recommend this place.Written June 21, 2022
- Some great education information at the Memorial. Very beautiful view, especially when the sun is setting!Written July 25, 2022
- This small museum housed in the old Carnegie Library in Pasco is well worth a visit to learn about local history. I especially liked the Latino section, as this was very new information to me.Written October 7, 2019
- My husband and I looped around SW WA for an impromptu day trip. We finished our drive driving West along the WA side of the Columbia River hitting it around 1pm and had the pleasure of seeing in on a blue bird day. There were so many awesome changes in terrain from dry rocky peaks, to mossy ferns reaching to the road, to snow, and then as we got closer to Vancouver, back to green lush landscape. The River and Columbia gorge were breathtaking and a site we can’t wait to drive through again. Tons a little lakes and waterfalls, places to fish or kayak, that next time we will have to stop and enjoy; park and recreational areas that will be fun to take the kids to, and small towns along the way with non-chain restaurant food options. I highly recommend stopping in Stevenson at the Big River Grill, which I made sure to review as well.
We may have to look into some of the fishing expeditions along the Columbia River next time too, and really get another view of this mini Grand Canyon-esk region in WA.... and hopefully catch an infamous sturgeon! Doesn’t matter if you’re new to WA or a native, the Columbia River is a place to experience.Written February 28, 2021
