Lovely museum, nice grounds for walking (boy was it hot, though), and my daughter got to help construct a tipi with 2 of the rangers. The staff was very enthusiastic about the park, visitors, and interpretation.

The Nez Perce National Historical Park is a wonderful stop to view the history of the Native Americans of Idaho.

The center has excellent displays of tribal bead work and tools. The staff are very knowledgeable and willing... More

What a wonderful and also hubmling experience to see the video clip on the Nez Perze. The museum was interesting, particularly as we were guided by a Native American Guide. How sad that so little of their own land remains.

The center has an excellent film to orient people to the Nez Perce culture and history. There are many artifacts on display and the staff is very friendly, willing to assist and knowledgeable. A visit is time well spent.

We happened to be driving through Idaho on 95 and decided to stop at this museum. We are very glad that we did. It is embarrassing to say but I did not know hardly anything about the Nez Perce or their history. The film and the exhibits were great and informative. Shocking to see how much smaller the current reservation... More

Visited this park in November 1986 and loved it then. It is mostly a series of signs and highway exhibits about historical locations of the Nez Pierce conflict of 1877, the Lewis and clark journeys and sites of historic and cultural significance. i was especially moved by the heart of the monster, the site that has the rock where the...

Great place, knowledgeable workers and lots to see. The museum offers much to look at and learn about, along with a short film. The walk/trail behind the museum is beautiful.

It is a great memorial to the Indian Nation as well as the first settlers that sacrificed everything to find a new beginning.

The museum is found within a visitors' center along the road. The exhibits are small but informative, and feature interesting artwork, plus it serves as an opportunity to stretch one's legs. The visitors' center had very friendly staff.
