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.

First of all, don't go expecting to see great art but it's vivid and detailed and the captions are full of information about the Whitmans and their nearby ill-fated mission. All the works are by the same artist and the faces are not the best,...More

The display of about 35 paintings is a good reminder of how difficult it was to build a life and prosper when the region was being settled in the mid-1800's and the challenges encountered when two cultures meet. We should be grateful for the struggle...More
