Two hours may be enough. well worth the visit. One building with some outside displays. Not huge

We were there a few weeks ago. We did not find it fascinating, but maybe you will. We did like the outside hikes (short) to see the ruts from the original Oregon Trail.

I had 8 direct line ancestors and 40 other family who came on the Oregon Trail. Most of them in 1852. So probably why I found it good

I drove most of it 10 or so years ago. I mean I followed the closest roads. Did get a feeling for the kind of land they crossed.

I think the inter center in Baker City is the best on the Trail. Fort Kearney is very good but not a lot of interp for Trail

We were there a few years ago. DH's family came out on the Oregon Trail. I think phirl's estimate of about two hours is right.
