Very interesting and surprisingly big exhibitions. I was impressed and I liked how they bring together a lot of different information all based on the Yakima valley. We loved the family price. It's affordable even as a big/extended family.

This museum is a favorite of my kids. The displays are always changing and it shows history of our area. Kids like to return often to see what's new. Also a cute soda shop right next door. Hit with the whole family! Very affordable also.

1/2 hr ride on remains of Yakima Valley electric railway once 20 some miles long. Historic cars have run since 1974. Plans to extend run once they replace the stolen copper wire.

Easy to locate. Areas of interest for all members of the family. Learning about Eastern Washington - very different from Western Washington. And don't forget to visit the soda fountain on the lower level.
