Educational and tragic

The Nez Percent NHP is actually a number of sites across the region that tell a tragic history. The sites are educational and well documented with interesting stories and exhibits.

We stopped on our way to Couer D'Alene after a week of camping in Oregon. The park has a Junior Ranger program for a patch you won't find anywhere else. Very pleasant and helpful staff of New Perce rangers. There is a well done 20 minute film on the Nez Perce, a photo exhibit, and an artifact exhibit. Things to... More

I've always been interested in learning more about the Nez Perce and their way of life. This is a great place to learn more about their history and honor the sacrifices they made by the hand of our government many years ago. Wonderful place for your family to visit - my husband, our grandsons and I had a great time!

Just about 11 miles outside of Lewiston, Idaho is located the Nez Perce NHP. Stop at the information center and review the area and enjoy the small museum and gift shop. It is a short walk to the east on a paved path to the LC Watson & Co General Merchandise store. It is not open but interesting to walk... More

The small museum has a good selection of exhibits and is nicely documented. The 20-some minute movie is worthwhile and talks about challenges faced by this native nation to preserve and strengthen its language and culture. The ranger was very friendly and helpful. The exhibits, movie, and a short paved walking path are all wheelchair accessible.

We've always wanted to visit this site. The ranger was very informative. The museum give a good overview of the Nez Perce story and has great examples of their arts and artifacts It was also nice to explore the layout of the original Spaulding mission. A very pleasant area along the Clearwater River.

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 Nez Perce National Historical Park is a great park covering many sites over a large area in OR, WA, and ID. 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
