  • Lots of informative exhibits and interactive activities for kids as well as adults. Elk can be viewed many days. 
  • Seeing the devastation of the mountain and the job being gone on reforestation. A great short movie. 
  • What a great learning experience! We really loved the theater and the displays to read and learn from. The view is great and information was gained from discussing logging with one of the volunteers. He had a wealth of knowledge about tree restoration. A wonderful experience!
  • One of the many visitors centers/ lookouts on this road to the Johnston Ridge Observatory. I feel like this center is more informative about the mountain and the eruption as well as giving you the historical background of the mountain and the people that worked in the area.
  • The kids loved learning about the local minerals, animals, and trees in their hands on room. It's a great place to stop on the way to the mountain. There is even a playground to let the kids blow off some steam after a long drive
  • Perfect way to spent with the family great view. Cost $8 for adult and kids 15 and under worth the price to see great view
  • The museum was unfortunately closed when we were here, but there are some good views of the valley from here and the gift shop is fantastic. If you're after Mount St Helens souvenirs, this is the place to be (don't hold out for the top).
