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!

Interesting museum with many beautiful displays. We were treated to a very special tour by , Charles, a knowledgeable and charming volunteer with a wealth of information of the area and agriculture equipment housed in this collection of artifacts. Thank you sir.

What a gem, a real nice look into the farming history of the north west. Well worth the visit. We really enjoyed the walk on the old side of our farming history. A great value for a family day out.

Lots information on the Fort's history. Inside and outside exhibits. Reasonably priced, expect to take 2.5 hours to view the entire museum. Nice nature trail next door.

This is a nice, at times surprising, local museum. It is definitely worth the visit, and the walking between displays is a nice stretch of the legs.

This is a pretty neat place to spend a couple of hours. It is a self guided tour and we were free to set our own pace. The exhibits covered pioneer buildings, the prison, agriculture and the area's military history.

This museum is well-worth the time spent! So much history on display, and we learned a lot about how Walla Walla came to be.

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
