What a find this museum is! The special exhibition during December documented the role of Japanese Americans in the Yakima Valley - very moving. We could have spent hours looking at each of the areas in the museum.

Lots of history in the museum. Learned a lot about the area and there is a lot of historical items in this museum. The kids enjoyed the children's underground.

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.
