Very clean and relaxing environment. The gift shop has some really great books and t-shirts to check out. Nothing else feels quite like home as the nearby trails, amazing view, and Pacific Northwest weather.

  • I had a tour and read nearly everything I could on the walls as I went through. it was fun learning about lewis and clark.
