I stopped by the Maryhill Museum of Art on my honeymoon back in 2011 because I had never been there. I thought it was a cool place to explore and I enjoyed going inside the facility. The museum shuts down for the season on Nov. 15, but it still has several great family events to attend before then.

The Maryhill Museum of Art is nestled right next to the Columbia River, about 12 miles from Goldendale, and it's a great inexpensive family day trip.

Here are some of the events they list that you can partake in before the winter closing:

            FAMILY FUN & THE COLUMBIA RIVER HIGHWAY- SATURDAY, November 5, 1               to 4 p.m. 

          Celebrate the historic dedication of Maryhill Museum of Art 90 years ago and the               centennial of the opening of the Historic Columbia River Highway. Youth 18 and                 under receive free admission all day.
