On the lower grounds, the Pioneer Settlement is a collection of 16 original and replica structures dating from 1859 to the turn of the century. On the upper grounds are 5 exhibit halls with permanent and changing exhibits. Exhibits include over 34,000 artifacts that tell the story of the settlement of the Pacific Northwest from the time of the Lewis and Clark expedition through the final days of horse-drawn agriculture.

The museum is situated on 15 acres of original property from the third U.S. Military Fort Walla Walla and is adjacent to a national historic cemetery of soldiers killed during regional Indian wars.
