Worth the cost

The $7.00 fee for adults is very much worth the cost. Five buildings to explore with vintage displays and interactive material everywhere. Gonna go back there again!

Had high expectations based on reviews on here. While not a bad museum by any means, I was a bit underwhelmed. I was hoping for more history on pioneer Walla Walla. No interactive displays. The early history and early farming exhibits were interesting. Great place for a picnic. Worth a stop if you're in town for a day or two.

Interesting displays and lots of local history including: jail cell, huge team of life-size mules hitched to harvesting machine, clothes, photos, buildings all in a historic setting.

Easy access with concise history and great review of local history. There are multiple artifacts and the host, Al, is very knowledgeable of the regional history.

Gift shop is nice also. Make sure to try the different mustards too, in the gift shop. The grounds are nice too for walking around.

I really enjoyed my visit and the carefully curated exhibits. Spent a lot of time in the outdoor portion on a mild April day, looking at the doctor's office, boy's clubhouse and other structures. Inside, the exhibits are well-lit and full of rich detail. This is a fine museum, and I encourage others to visit. A friendly volunteer greeted me... More

This is an amazing museurm for a town the size of Walla Walla. We went with low expectations, but we were wrong. There is a history of Fort Walla Walla and some pictures about its use as a training facility for the World Wars, but there is much more. There are excellent exhibits of Native American and Hispanic crafts. Large... More

This museum goes on and on. First you see WWI and WWII history with uniforms, photos, even calling cards. Since my grandfather was a soldier in WWI I was very interested. There is a collection of Hispanic artifacts which was very colorful, and a parlor with eye-spy items. Then you go to building number 2, 3, 4 and so on... More
