They have a great program for kids and it's a great, historic place to visitl. They did a really good job presenting the history of this location, especially considering it's really just a big open field.

This is a terrific chance to learn about our hsitory and yet not have to travel forever a-and- a -day to take part. The presentation is precise, and extensive, and you are in the midst of a natural setting such that you can envision the history in-the -making

The Big Hole is still one of the top 3 Fishing areas in Montana. Great camping spots along the river and views of the Mountains.

It was just beautiful and provided a lot of knowledge for you to scoop up. We have only been during the summer, for obvious reasons... but enjoyed it every time.

I've been here twice now. The museum give a great discription on the tragedy that took place with the Nez Perce .There is a movie shown that gives an overview of the whole summer, watch it first! Then you can go do the interprative trail. Make sure you buy a map at the trail head..only $1.00. It gives you information about each marker, or better yet, if you have time take the free guided trail walk with a park ranger. it's about 1 1/2 hours long. there is picnic areas and a fishing spot right there too. really pretty part of the country.
