EVENTS ARE CELEBRATIONS
Museum events are festivals of fun, entertainment, and exhibitions. Old-time music and dancing, costumed participants, demonstrations, and a Living History company reveal the day-to-day lives of Walla Walla’s earlier citizens. Many events include treats and food as well as special activities for children, who also may enjoy the Museum’s new Play Fort.
All are invited to join family and friends in Museum events to celebrate and learn about Walla Walla’s history.
Community members portraying early Walla Walla inhabitants — fur traders, missionaries, farmers, soldiers, madams, merchants, judges, school teachers, and many others.
Fort Walla Walla Days
A family-oriented, two-day event featuring encampments with costumed historical interpreters showing exhibits and giving demonstrations.
Children churn butter, pan for gold, pack a horse, keep a journal — experiencing how people lived in the 19th century.
Ice Cream Social
A traditional community event offering craft demonstrations, entertainment, Living History performances, special exhibits, and more. Free ice cream.
Museum After Hours
A Monthly lecture series to be held on the last Thursday of every month. We are hoping to provide a space for community congregation, discussion and debate, touching on topics ranging from regional culture and history to the roles and responsibilities of museums within our communities.
