  • Thought I was a history buff, learned today that I wasn't on the Oregon Trail. Growing up in Boise, last 20 years living in Georgia. I switched to Civil War history and forgot the others.  more »

  • This is a great interactive experience for all ages. We have been coming here for the last few years and enjoyed every time. This place provides the opportunity to see up close some of the struggles early pioneers experienced on their long journey to a new life in the west. Whether you want to walk the outdoor paths or follow the indoor self-guided tour, there is always something different to see. I look forward to the next trip.
  • My wife and I were amazed at the scope of the facility and the grounds. They made you experience the pioneering effort well-- identifying with the hardships of primitive continental travel. A lot of work went into the dioramas. You can actually walk on a preserved section of the trail.
  • So much to learn about the early pioneers...such strong, determined people. This center has done a wonderful job of bringing all the information to life. The dioramas are exceptional. Today we were treated to an early blacksmith demo. Boy, do we have easy lives these days.
  • Hadn't been here since 5th grade. I figured it wouldn't be very interesting. Turned out to be more interesting then when I was in 5th grade.
  • A fascinating place to understand what the movement westward meant. Displays are engaging and very informative. I spent hours here in June 2017 and will not hesitate to return when in the area again.
