History:-

Maryhill Museum of Art has been awarded the highest honor a museum can receive: accreditation by the American Association of Museums. Accreditation certifies that a museum operates according to standards set forth by the museum profession, manages its collections responsibly and provides quality service to the public. Of the 8,000 museums nationwide, only 750 are accredited, with only 15 in Washington and Oregon.

Accreditation is one of several programs offered by the American Association of Museums to help museums achieve and maintain current standards of quality and excellence in the museum profession. AAM is a national organization, with its headquarters in Washington, D.C., that has served the museum profession since 1906.


Maryhill Museum of Art seeks to enrich the lives of Pacific Northwest residents and visitors by providing public access to the Museum's influential history and broad spectrum of artistic expression. This is accomplished through growth and stewardship of the Museum's unique collections, cultural and natural resources, and presentation of quality exhibitions and educational programs.

This museum has a huge collection of various art. I was really impressed with the Rodin section and the chess peices were really beautiful. In the basement there is a wonderful Cafe with decent food. The woman who served us was very nice and accommodating. The view of the Columbia River was absolutely amazing! I would definitely recommend this museum.

You need at least couple of hours for this place. Beautiful, worth it. So much art and history. Make sure you stop by Stonehenge about 4 miles east of it. And you can go by the water at Maryhill state park, just down the hill from Stonehenge. Also when you come out from Maryhill state park there is wine tasting place, gotta feel local wines! Enjoy your day, you will love it! Just read little more about this places, before you go, that will give you a better feel of it!...

Incredible collection of fine art and relics. My favorite was the Theatre de Mode, post WWII fashion miniatures. Museums are few and far between in Eastern Washington, so make the beautiful drive to come see this place. We spent at least 2 hours to see everything. Parking was easy and the cafe downstairs has really good sandwiches and potato salad.

Very nice museum with many more exhibits than I would have expected for such a rural area. Three and a half floors of exhibits plus nice cafe. Beautiful scenery and yard. Outside art exhibits are very nice, too. Fantastic view of the Gorge!

You have to visit this place ! If nothing else the Rodin sculptures. There are such good histories and explanations about the pieces, plan to stay awhile. If that's not your thing, there's art, Indian relics, and huge old mansion and grounds that it is in. Or, don't go inside and just admire the excellent view of the gorge from the overlook on site.
