Visit Fort Walla Walla - very interesting history of wheat ranching.

Loved the full sized combine with 33 mules harnessed mules. This is how they used to do it! Amazing to see!

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

This museum is very worth... More

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

The collection of items is amazing. We enjoyed both the indoor section and the historic buildings. A great display of the farming history and some insights into the indigenous peoples. A must to visit.

The museum has expanded quite a bit since the last time I was here. There are three exhibits in the main building, 5 other buildings with exhibits, plus pioneer buildings that were moved in. We even caught a lecture on Sunday.

I am thinking most people do not take the time to see this historical fort. It is very well kept with lots of displays. Cabins are made up to look as they did during the time of the fort. There are short video's and the grounds are beautiful
