This is our second visit to this cultural center and museum. It is a good museum which highlights Native Americans and how the rivers impact lives. Lewis and Clark history is very interesting. This well worth the stop.

Nice little museum if you have some extra time to kill. Not worth going out of the way. Museum in Baker City up the road is much better.

Winter weather and we found ourselves the only 2 visitors to the museum in February, 2017. Several feet of snow made the Japanese Garden inaccessible, but we could appreciate its tiny, sheltered presence off the main hallway. Exhibits were informative and well formulated chronologically. There...More

I just used a GPS. You can look up this museum on the Internet and get the exact address and then check a map or use a GPS like I did.
