Learn the detailed history during the years of discovery of this colorful and rich area. The history is presented in a series of paintings chronological arranged. It proved impossible to break away until the last painting was digested.

This exhibit lines several hallways inside the Marcus Whitman Hotel. It tells the story of Marcus Whitman in detail. Especially interesting to history buffs.

If you want to see a visual treat of the history of the Walla Walla Valley, this is the place to go. There is one mural by Jeffrey Hill that is superb. It was like seeing a Van Gogh painting of the history of Walla...More

I was working in an "office" away from office environment on the 2nd floor of the hotel and didn't notice the story at first. I just thought they were great pictures. Once I found out, it was very interesting to review the story and see...More

The art gallery and the Marcus Whitman Hotel is fabulous. An account of the Whitman history in a 35 piece display from the handshake in New York to the Silence of the Waiilatpu. Not for children as it is graphic. The display is historically accurate...More

Look. Times change. There was a time when you could get away with this simplistic kind of presentation of a complex history. But that was long ago. If you are a fan of Dave Manuel's depictions of manifest destiny in paintings or bronze, you will...More

It's worth a trip if you have time and like history more than fine art. It won't take long. I was staying at the hotel and it is was informative. Otherwise, it would not be on my top ten.
