I've visited Missoula's Smokejumper Center countless times and always find something interesting to see and something new to learn. It's a great education in the history of and current practices of wild-land fire fighting in the US. and it is the largest of its kind in the US. Visitors can access self-initiated interactive videos, plus take a tour where one can see equipment, parachutes, and the smoke-jumpers planes. I highly recommend the tour, which run about every hour. Usually, there is a smoke-jumper or two actually working on the premises, and they are great about answering questions. THE most exciting visit for us was when the alarm sounded and the smokejumpers ran in front of us, to their plane to go off and fight an actual fire.
