Fort Walla Walla Museum is located within the one-square-mile military reservation that served as Fort Walla Walla from the 1850s to the early 1900s. The Museum features a pioneer settlement complete with original buildings including a cabin built by Ransom Clark in the 1850s, the Union School built in 1867, a jail from Prescott, a barbershop, a railroad depot from Eureka Flats, and many other buildings. There are also five spacious exhibit halls filled with hundreds of exhibits featuring horse-era agriculture, pioneer life, and military history.

Time magazine rated Fort Walla Walla Museum as one of 11 notable sites in the nation to experience the Lewis & Clark Expedition, and the National Park Service added its recognition in 2005.

This season, the Museum is proudly displaying the Lloyd Family Indian Artifact Collection: Positive Cultural Interaction in Southeast Washington. Featuring scores of dazzling beaded and embroidered items, baskets, and photographs, the exhibit tells stories of more than 80 years of friendship between a pioneer family and their friends among the region’s Homeland Tribes.

Fort Walla Walla Museum offers programs, special events, kids camps, and tours for schools or other groups. We are a family-oriented museum with plenty of activities for all age groups.
