Overview

Fort Walla Walla Museum is a walking museum located on 17 acres, and is a must-see for visitors. As the primary caretaker of the cultural and historical heritage of the Walla Walla Valley, the Museum features four large exhibit halls housing thousands of artifacts, a pioneer village, a 33-mule team hitched to a wooden combine, and more. The Entrance Building features several galleries, including one for rotating special exhibits, and an admission-free Museum Store filled with books and heritage gifts. On the lower level of the grounds is a Pioneer Village with 17 buildings, many of them furnished, for guests to explore. There are more than 40 living history performances every year that take place in the village. The Museum also hosts additional activities, classes, and events—like the free Museum After Hours presentation series, which features thought-provoking topics on everything from history to conservation. The Fort Walla Walla Museum provides a memorable experience for the whole family, and you’re sure to learn something new during every visit. Come see what’s new at the old fort today!

You can't taste wine all day long, so this is a great place to spend time when you are not in vineyards. We went when the museum opened, and at the suggestion of the person staffing the gift shop, started outdoors in the Pioneer Village....More

We enjoyed every bit of this museum, especially the farming and the Indian musicians. That was a surprise -- a couple of Indian dance bands from the 1920s (I believe), in full regalia, with all the instruments you would expect. The 33-mule threshing machines were...More

Small museum with some interesting exhibits and out buildings. Nice for families with kids. The display and short film of the mules was very interesting. There was a special event with plenty of volunteers in costume. Without them it wouldn't have been as interesting. But...More

This is a fairly small venue that packs a lot of history both inside the air-conditioned museum, and outside at the 'living history' part of the museum.

The museum is constantly searching for new ways to present history. The museum reflects the history of the Walla Walla valley and southeastern Washington State.The exhibits are professionally done with excellent interpretation of the artifacts. A weekly series of historical re-enactors adds an additional dimension.

Pioneer Village outside is fun to walk through..You can peak into the cabins, general store, schoolhouse etc. Then go inside to visit all the historical exhibits and a great gift shop.
