This center was the main reason for our traveling to Salmon. The room has good historic notes about Sagagawea, and the grounds are nice for an easy hike. There are teepees and other structures in an attempt to recreate a feel for the historic Native American village. There is a lovely statue of this important woman who served as interpreter... More

Nice area surrounded by mountains that are breath taking. This is a very easy walk. Not very crowed. Does not cost anything to go through the area. Has some nice displays of Lewis and Clark era.

Great visit for tour and for a hike around the beautiful interpretive trail. Sat for some time visiting with relatives we came to visit in the shade of the over hanging roof. School class came to visit while we were there.

We stopped here because friends had volunteered here during the summer and we were curious. The museum is small and required a lot of reading to get the story. There are several films to watch but we didn't take the time. There are 1.5 miles of walking trails with interpretive signs and displays which was very enjoyable and a fun... More

The visitor center is not that big, but is nice and there is a good film available. I especially enjoyed the walk with interpretive signs.

Nice job in teaching the history of Sacagawea and the Lewis & Clark expedition. Watch the video that is shown on request. Next door at the nature center is a field that is restored to how the valley looked in the 1800's before the white man screwed it all up. A nice interpretive trail makes a loop through the field.

By now, we've all heard of Lewis and Clark's famous expedition to find a water passage across North America and the aid given them by the famous Indian maiden, Sacagawea. This Center, owned and maintained by the City of Salmon, is a delight. A small interpretive center comes with super knowledgeable docents as well as several short, well-done videos. Then... More

The Sacagawea Interpretive Center was unexpectedly beautiful with a walking trail and education areas along the way. The docent at the museum center was very knowledgeable and helpful. We were exceedingly glad we visited. Kit T.

The outdoor exhibits are well-spaced throughout pastures and meadows, with some amazing Beaverhead Mtn. views behind the land. The exhibits were informative and tasteful, without giving you too much information. Also, the variety of information is nice, from Sacagawea and the Lewis and Clark expedition, to facts about the land itself during that time-period.
