I was expecting to see some art and history of the Maryhill area and maybe the Columbia. That is NOT what I found. What I found was a collection of art and some interesting Indian artifacts. The view is awesome.

An interesting and eclectic collection of interesting items, including an entire gallery of Rodin sculptures. Who knew. And so much history in this area. Stop by the fish ladder at the Dalles lock for an truly interesting day.
