“More than 43,000 artifacts”
With a mission to discover, preserve and share the heritage of the Walla Walla region, we maintain a collection of more than 43,000 artifacts and photographs that help tell the stories of the many peoples who have called the region home. We share this remarkable heritage through exhibits and displays in our new Entrance Building & Exhibit Galleries, four spacious exhibit halls, a 17-structure pioneer settlement, as well as through special events, childrens' programs, classes, more than 40 Living History presentations, and a number of outreach programs. The Museum traces its lineage to a pioneer historical society in the 1880s. Through the years the name has changed, but the vision to preserve and share the heritage of "The Cradle of Northwest History" has not wavered. The Museum opened its doors to the public at the current location in Fort Walla Walla Park in 1968, making 2011 our 44th season of service to the community.
