Well curated. Children and adults will find exhibits of interest. Not confining exhibits as you can walk out in the park to view other exhibits of interest.

I love history- wandered through the many exhibits by myself. I found myself wishing that I had kids along... this was a place that both young & old would enjoy!

Museum was interesting. Much more than I had anticipated for a small town Museum. Knitting class was well presented.

This museum has a very rural feel, as it tells the story of this unique valley in SE WA state. Period pieces of equipment, and stories make this experience one you will remember. Not fancy, but if you want to 'see' the 19th and 20 centuries from a different perspective, this should be seen when visiting the rural Walla Walla... More

Must Do if touristing Walla Walla. The explanation of wheat farming (sounds boring?) is really quite mind-expanding. The old buildings around the grounds really show life of the area in a personal "I could have been this person" sort of way. But most moving is the army cemetery. Learning what these soldiers endured (and some not enduring) in defeat after... More

We visited the museum on a rainy day, but still had a fantastic time. The curator was very knowledgeable and the displays excellent. It was such an awesome collection of the area and the history of farming, military, prison and industry life in this beautiful city. The buildings brought to the museum site are awesome. This museum is very worth... More

We decided to check out Fort Walla Walla during a quick trip there in October. It has very nice grounds, is organized well and very informative. The fort was established in the mid 1800's and was used and not used for an Army base for about 100 years. There are some military historical artifacts on display as well as a... More

We expected a tiny and boring museum, and were quite surprised while exploring the Fort Walla Walla Museum. The place has different exhibits depicting the pioneer village daily life, including military and also agricultural equipment. From clothing, to cookware, buggies, engines, wagons and toys, you'll spend at least one hour admiring their indoor and outdoor exhibits. My favorite is the... More
