Owner description: This 70-acre park is located in the Lemhi and Salmon River Valleys in eastern Idaho. It is surrounded by the Beaverhead Mountains and the Continental Divide and borders the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. The Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural & Educational Center interprets the rich cultural and natural history of the Salmon and Lemhi River Country, deepening people’s connection to the unique place this area holds in our nation’s history, which was shaped in part by the Lewis and Clark Expedition and Sacajawea, as well as her people, the Agaidika Shoshone-Bannock Tribes. The Sacajawea Center is owned and operated by the City of Salmon. Our mission is to foster the knowledge and appreciation of the Agaidika Shoshone-Bannock Tribes, the Lewis & Clark Expedition, Western frontier life, and the natural environment.

We have been interested in visiting this center for sometime now and finally took the time to visit it. Although the center is still developing its collections and capbilities, our visit was quite enjoyable. The short video that is played is very worthwhile to view. Plus the walk around the center along the trails was fun and refreshing.

A very nice tribute to Sacagewea, a true National Hero. Arguably the most important woman ever to our Nation's success. This is a must see if you are interested in the History of the Lewis & Clark Expedition, and or Native American History. Is in a beautiful setting with the Lemhi River running through it. There is a beautiful walking path with Historical Markers throughout the area.

This place has a great laid out walking trail as well as mocked up tepees and camp sites. Also, we listened to a well presented interpretive talk. This weekend there is the yearly celebration of the Shoshone people who lived here.

The Sacajawea center is a must see for anyone who loves to get a picture of our history. The center is a wonderful stop on the highway that can bring you back in time to the days of Lewis and Clarke and tells the story of the native people and Sacajawea. Must see!

Great place for a concert if they are having one. Interesting historical information - but wouldn't make a special trip to Salmon just for this. But if you are in town and looking for something to do, it is a nice stop over.
