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...More

I visited the Sacajawea Center two times. The first time, I went inside and read all the history and watched a video. I especially enjoyed visiting with the two volunteers who worked there. They were really nice and knowledgeable about the Salmon area and enthusiastic...More

And interesting attraction on the Lewis and Clark trail. A beautiful statue graces the walking area and the interpretive center focuses on Sacajawea, the local area and the Shoshone Indians. Close to various restaurants and hotels. A wonderful place to visit while in Salmon

There is a lot to see here and lots of information to be gained. Don't miss the opportunity most especially if you have children. It isn't something you should miss!

Good place to learn about Lewis and Clarks' expedition and the Indian Lady, who, if not for her, would have never survived. Docents were very sharp and it was evident that they liked what they were doing for the tourists who were interested.

We have seen many Lewis & Clark museums. This one was interesting and we learned a lot about Sacagawea's tribe and how they lived. The nature trail is nice but it was too hot the day we were there.

Very pretty and we had a nice walk around the area. They had a quaint garden area and we enjoyed looking at the veggies.

Learnt more about the Lewis and Clarke Expedition and what an important role Sacagawea played in it. In fact they could not have done it without her and we are pleased that at long last she has been recognised.

With the Salmon area having historical significance in the Lewis and Clark expedition, it is wholly apropos to build and dedicate an interpretative center to their lead scout and confident, Sacagawea. The center is point on, with an objective and visceral experience for all. Please...More

$10.00 and an hour or hour and one half if you walk the trail to the river through the tipi area and the primitive village
