I wasn't certain what we would find when we arrived at the mansion that Sam Hill built for his wife so long ago. A true visionary, Sam Hill made some exceptional additions to his mansion , but you will have to go and see for yourself! The artwork contains some phenomenal pieces, some due to the Romanian Royal Family, and... More

I visited this museum years ago and I would have given it a good review at the time. My wife and I were making the drive from Walla Walla to Portland and she found the Cafe on the Museum website. We diverted across the river and up to Maryhill only to find out we had to pay full admission just... More

Did not know what to expect here, it was very nice. The story of the family was quite interesting. The collection is kindof quirky. Quite a bit of Rodin sculpture and models, wonderful glass, some older traditional paintings. A collection of small 'dolls' modeling fashionable clothing creations. Old, grand furniture donated by a queen of Romania who was a friend... More

I wasn't expecting too much but I was quite impressed worth the collection found here. Definitely worth the time and cost of the visit. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Be sure to take the time to wander the grounds and check out some of the outdoor sculptures and the great views all around. Be sure to stop by... More

We have been to Maryhill a few times for our son to longboard. This year we went to the museum to ask about the road and ended up visiting. What a hidden gem. It was interesting for all of us including our two teenagers. Definitely stop by if your are in the area.

It is a must to watch the introductory video offered--it's in the room nearest where you enter. We found the theater exhibit the most interesting. Be sure to walk out on the patio, the views are to die for.

Worth checking out if you are heading to Maryhill Winery or passing through the gorge. It will take about 2-3 hours and on a sunny day, the view is spectacular! Very friendly and helpful reception when you get there. Make sure to check out the Stonehedge which is less than 5 minutes away.

A great place for a group of girlfriends to stroll and share in the collection. It's a very eclectic collection of items, from paintings, furniture, Native American displays to chess sets in this home overlooking the Columbia River Gorge. The views are spectacular and the story of the home Sam Hill had built for his wife Mary are worth stopping... More
