I have always wanted to stop and go to this museum and I finally did! It was lovely. The entrance fee is very reasonable for a museum of this caliber. The building and view alone are worth the drive off the beaten track. The beautiful entrance displays and history of Romanian royalty are fascinating. The chess display we saw held... More

MaryhillMuseum has such an eclectic collection and the building is fabulous with even more fabulous views. I love the history of this place - it's all about having a dream. The Theater de Mode Fashion Exhibit & Rodin collections are my favorite but this is a place of magic & history I will always treasure.

Interesting story of Sam Hill a early pioneer of this place of the state, and how he build this mansion for his wife Mary. Who never lived here. Great art museum and they have a sandwich bar too. You can visit the Maryhill winery next store and its a easy drive to Stonehenge too.

Maryhill Museum has wonderful things to see both inside and outside the museum. The outside reveals far reaching vistas of Oregon, across the river, and the Columbia Hills and the river below plus a fantastic view of Mt. Hood. The grounds are full of outdoor sculptures to explore. Inside there are treasures to discover from Queen Marie's Romania. She personally... More

We were on a trip exploring the Columbia Gorge on our way to Portland from Spokane and took time to tour this amazing museum. You could easily spend a whole day here - with multiple floors of exhibits, a great cafe with a wonderful view of the river, a large park with picnic space and the Stonehenge replica and veterans...

We had no idea this museum even existed. We were staying close to there and had some extra time so thought we would check it out. We were quite impressed and surprised. There was a large variety of exhibits and artifacts. The grounds were quite beautiful. Well worth the time for a visit.

I have visited here several times over many years. The collection is astonishing considering where the museum is located. You would expect to see something like this in a major city. It reminds me a little of the Getty Villa in Malibu. A very nice setting and an extensive collection. If you are anywhere within 100 miles, it's worth the... More

This impressive building is the jewel of the 5,300 acres situated along the Columbia River Gorge. There are four floors of displays including Native American baskets, clothing, tools, etc., furniture designed by the Queen of Romania, original Rodin art pieces,... More

I happened on to this museum by accident. It sits above the Columbia Gorge and is a beautiful house . Sam Hill was a mover and shaker in this area. The museum has several small Rodin sculptures, several things that belonged to Queen Marie of Romania, a collection of chess sets, Native American baskets, etc. A joy to visit.
