I didn't know there was a museum when I went there. The spot was missing on TripAdvisor (what a shame) It's a fairly nice small museum. The ranger there was very nice and showed us a 20-min film about the Indian Reservation, and their beliefs (interesting). There are a few hiking trails you can walk around and a small historic...

Did we see the same museum? We went in July 2014 and the film we saw was probably shot in the 1970s. Some of the greatest and bravest Indian fighters were part of the Nez Perce. I was so disappointed because it did not show the true bravado of Chief Joseph Sr. and Junior, Looking Glass, Yellow Wolf..there was a... More

This National Park visitors center was an excellent way to learn about the Nez Perce tribe and the trials they encountered on their way to Canada to escape the US Army. The video explaining their situation was very good and the visitor centers staff was extremely knowledgeable. Well work the trip.

The visitors center at Spaulding is located along the Clearwater river, on a hill overlooking Spaulding Park which was the location of the Spaulding Mission. The visitors center has many displays of native art and culture. There is... More

A lot of History in the drive from Lewiston, Idaho to Grangeville, Idaho. Whether your interested in Lewis & Clark or the Nez Perce - you will not be disappointed! The scenery is Spectacular. The confluence of the Snake & Clearwater Rivers is in Lewiston.

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.

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.
