The institute chronicles tribal heritage and the impact of Western migration from the Native American perspective.
An amazing and beautiful tribute to the history of the Native Americans of the Pacific Northwest! So well done and very informative! We learned so much and will take other friends next year at Roundup! ?????

Book ahead for this without a doubt, if you don't you probably won't get lucky!
It takes a good 2 hours to do the tour, lots of steps, slopes and rough ground to cover. We had Cindy as our guide and she was a mine of information, answered questions readily and knew a lot about the history of the area. As a non profit organization, these guys do better than some very well funded operations, a real treasure!

We often try to time our long drives from UT to WA to get to the store during business hours. The prices on woolen products are sky high, but for such beautiful quality it's no more than one would expect. We especially enjoy the bargain room where we've bought many large wool blankets - generally with only minor flaws - for about half of retail price.

I went in 2013 and loved every minute of it. Heaps to do all week both day and night. I hope I can get to go again one year. Best enjoyed with good friends. Get a programme for the full timetable. Don't miss a thing and don't forget your cowboy hat!

Lively gaming complex, located on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, features 500 real video slot machines plus Slots, Poker, Keno, Off Track Betting and Bingo.
I find many casinos to be with smoke from cigarettes, and we always look for the non-smoking area to gamble. The non-smoking area is there, but not so large. I guess there are many smokers in Oregon. We gamble little, came in and played the slot machines on the way to the buffet, and that was it for us. I guess we are not going to be on their A list of big spenders at Wildhorse.

Alexander's Chocolaterie & Vino Bistro is completely unique in that they have blended the art of chocolate craftsmanship with a full wine tasting room that sponsors a changing venue of local artisan and estate wineries to raise the art of your chocolate and wine experience beyond the ordinary or expected... greatly surpassing what is common or usual, that's for sure! French trained chocolatiers are always in the shop and they are known widely for their craftsmanship and impeccable attention to quality and detail. Everything is hand-crafted from a full spectrum of European and American cacao. Simply: "The Best!"
After our tour through Underground Portland, Alexander's Chocolate Classics was a welcome site. We bought a "8 pack" of decorated chocolates for us and our travelling companions. We all agreed that I should have bought more. So, the next time you are in Pendleton, Oregon, please visit Alexander's and buy a bit more than you planned to. It's "Highly Recommended" by me!

Had a business luncheon and ate at Hamley's. Great food! Fantastic service and ALOT of history within their building. Their bar is from the 1800's and came over from Europe. They also have the actual teller windows from The First National Bank when the Sundance kid robbed the it. Just an all around great time! Loved drinking at the bar and the server was really nice to talk about some of the great pieces inside the Restaurant.

A great place to view, buy and make art and fine craft. This beautifully renovated 1915 Carnegie Library building is home to a wide variety of exhibits, sales galleries, live music performances, workshops and classes for all ages. Admission is always free. Nestled in the heart of downdown Pendleton.
Staff person was very helpful and knowledgeable of the art pieces presented. She took the time to explain the process for the questions we asked. Really appreciated the insight and her experience. The special exhibit for the art of Chuck Close was most interesting, some...MoreWe're so glad you got a chance to see the exhibit. We'll be sad when we have to pack it up. Hope to see you here at PCA again.

We were in town visiting family and were looking for something to do on a rainy day. My daughter is 15 months and walking/running so we thought this place might be fun.
Overall, I was surprised that they charge $4. a person. We thought it would just be per child since obviously we aren't actually doing anything but watching, but I guess $12 for an hour of enjoyment is OK.
We checked out the toddler room first. They need a door that latches. All my kid wanted to do was push open the door and get out of there.
We then went to the market and she LOVED it. Some of it was too tall for her and sadly the room is a little small for the shopping carts to move around but she had a ton of fun putting things in her cart and pushing the cart around. The pizza place was not at the right age for her, she just wanted to eat the fake toppings to we headed to the back of the museum.
She liked the Lewis and Clark ship but we were afraid she was going to fall in the hole in the middle of the boat.
Several of the rooms are too low for parents to stand (again, why do they charge the parents?) so we really couldn't spend much time there unless we sat on the floor and the tea party area, which might have been fun for her, was dangerous with no gate on the stairs.
You get admission for the full day, so we came back again later in the day after an early dinner. It was PACKED and crazy! I'm glad we started at 10 am when it opened as she had many rooms to herself, but it was fun to come back and have her spend another 30 minutes running off steam after sitting in a high chair for an hour for dinner.
Overall, this place is small but can be engaging. I think it's best for kids maybe 3+. The toddler room was just a little too small and boring but the other rooms items were places too high for a 1 year old. I might try it again if back in the area.
