Very nice place. Loved the trails.

The visitor center is not that big, but is nice and there is a good film available. I especially enjoyed the walk with interpretive signs.

Nice job in teaching the history of Sacagawea and the Lewis & Clark expedition. Watch the video that is shown on request. Next door at the nature center is a field that is restored to how the valley looked in the 1800's before the white man screwed it all up. A nice interpretive trail makes a loop through the field.

A wonderful combination of museum & trail walk! Very knowledgeable staff who can answer any question. Close to the center of Salmon and definitely worth a visit.

By now, we've all heard of Lewis and Clark's famous expedition to find a water passage across North America and the aid given them by the famous Indian maiden, Sacagawea. This Center, owned and maintained by the City of Salmon, is a delight. A small interpretive center comes with super knowledgeable docents as well as several short, well-done videos. Then... More

The Sacagawea Interpretive Center was unexpectedly beautiful with a walking trail and education areas along the way. The docent at the museum center was very knowledgeable and helpful. We were exceedingly glad we visited. Kit T.

The outdoor exhibits are well-spaced throughout pastures and meadows, with some amazing Beaverhead Mtn. views behind the land. The exhibits were informative and tasteful, without giving you too much information. Also, the variety of information is nice, from Sacagawea and the Lewis and Clark expedition, to facts about the land itself during that time-period.

Lets you look into the past and proud heritage of our Native Americans. Especially those who made the Salmon River valley and eastern Idaho their home.

The staff here are extremely well informed and friendly. The space is relatively small but there is a surprisingly large amount of interesting things to see. A very interesting and inspiring story for all young girls.

Took my kids here and we expected to be in and out in about 45 min but we ended up staying for 5 hours. The inside portion is small, they offer historic movies and a few art projects for the kids the real fun is the outdoor self guided portion. Our absolute favorite was checking out and going inside all... More

The family stopped here while visiting Salmon recently. The visitor center is on the small side but the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I learned that Lewis and Clark had an air rifle on their trip, very neat. The grounds are quiet and peaceful and a walk around the grounds is very pleasant. Stop by and you might learn something...
