  • We stopped in recently after a year of wanting to go! It was fun. The Sam Hill room was the best - plan to spend time there to learn all about him and his vision for good roads. We enjoyed the native ...  more »

  • I have gone there on and off since I was a kid. It just keeps getting better. I am particularly fond of the Gimmel art works, the chess sets, and the Romanian royal art treasures.
  • Wonderful museum on the hill. An interesting bit of Oregon history. One of the few time Russian Royalty has been on American soil. The only time Tzar Nicholas came here. Great history for the building it's self, wonderful art displays. Has been updated with more rooms and comfort for the visitor. I love to stop here when in Oregon.
  • Ever wonder where the expression "what the Sam Hill are you doing?" came from? Wonder no more, this impressive museum, out in the remote area of Washington is where this started. 1906, Sam Hill sunk millions to create a mansion and orchard that was well ahead of its time. Now it's a museum, consisting of 4 stories, including Native American artifacts, pictures and stories from Alaska to the east coast. The museum site has a commanding view overlooking the Columbia River.
  • Beautiful surroundings overlooking the Columbia River gorge. Nice and doable museum with great permanent exhibits and sometimes wonderful surprises. Well worth the trip!
  • A historic building. It began as residence but before it's completion it became an art museum. It is full of art ranging from native American to European art. Our favorite is the extensive collection of chess sets from all over the world. If you have never visited it is well worth the trip. Our family likes to visit often. This year was the first time we have ever been allowed to tour the roof of the museum. The view from this vantage point is spectacular. I hope they continue to allow guests to go onto the roof to enjoy the view and learn about the intended use of this space.
