Maryhill Museum has wonderful things to see both inside and outside the museum. The outside reveals far reaching vistas of Oregon, across the river, and the Columbia Hills and the river below plus a fantastic view of Mt. Hood. The grounds are full of outdoor sculptures to explore. Inside there are treasures to discover from Queen Marie's Romania. She personally... More

We were on a trip exploring the Columbia Gorge on our way to Portland from Spokane and took time to tour this amazing museum. You could easily spend a whole day here - with multiple floors of exhibits, a great cafe with a wonderful view of the river, a large park with picnic space and the Stonehenge replica and veterans...

We had no idea this museum even existed. We were staying close to there and had some extra time so thought we would check it out. We were quite impressed and surprised. There was a large variety of exhibits and artifacts. The grounds were quite beautiful. Well worth the time for a visit.

I have visited here several times over many years. The collection is astonishing considering where the museum is located. You would expect to see something like this in a major city. It reminds me a little of the Getty Villa in Malibu. A very nice setting and an extensive collection. If you are anywhere within 100 miles, it's worth the... More

After reading about and hearing about Samuel Hill, I included Maryhill Art Museum in my itinerary. What a pleasant surprise! This impressive building is the jewel of the 5,300 acres situated along the Columbia River Gorge. There are four floors of displays including Native American baskets, clothing, tools, etc., furniture designed by the Queen of Romania, original Rodin art pieces,... More

I happened on to this museum by accident. It sits above the Columbia Gorge and is a beautiful house . Sam Hill was a mover and shaker in this area. The museum has several small Rodin sculptures, several things that belonged to Queen Marie of Romania, a collection of chess sets, Native American baskets, etc. A joy to visit.

Set above the Columbia River with an expansive gorgeous view. Here many stories come together including: The building of Maryhill - just upriver from the former Celilo Falls, why Loie, a European butterfly dancer and artist helped bring Rodin and more than 80 of his sculptures to Maryhill as well as artifacts from Queen Marie of Romania (who visited and...

We've been here before they added the ultra-modern building that is attached to the original museum. People were warm and welcoming then. Not so much now. This location is on the way to nowhere - definitely a destination location. People are highly unlikely to come to Maryhill just to use the bathroom. However, when we arrived, after a two hour...

I was hoping that not all of the building was an art gallery. It would have been wonderful to see parts of the building restored back to its original use. The garage is one area that I feel would be fantastic to see in operation. the building is a wonderful building, but really would have liked to see some historical... More

I have visited this museum several times and have never been disappointed. There are interesting permanent exhibits and some galleries have rotating exhibits. These have been exceptionally fine exhibits plus the site is beautiful, overlook the Columbia River. There is also a very nice, small, gift shop. It you are ANYWHERE nearby it is very much worth a stop.
