Came across this visitor center while driving through. Really enjoyed visiting since I just finished reading a history of the Nez Perce. The visitor center has some historical items from the Nez Perce but the best part is to wander down where the village was located and take in the history of the area.

I have always been fascinated by Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce. We stopped at the visitor center and received lots of information about the Nez Perce and the National Park, which is actually made up of several sites that tell the tragic story of the Nez Perce. It is well worth the visit. Everyone should understand about this period... More

A must visit site along the Clearwater River. Check out the Nez Perz heritage. Lots of interesting information here for history buffs or simply curious folks.

Fairly extensive exhibits for a small museum. Best feature was probably the movie. It was unique in that, besides the usual description of past events, it also showed current events regarding progress towards the re-establishment of the language and other Nez Perce culture. That was nice to see.

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.
