  • This is an unusual National Park Service site because it is located on a reservation and contains sites spread over 4 states. There is no one site that jumps out as a "wow" destination, but the vast grouping of sites helps to tell the complex history of the Nez Perce tribe. The "town" of Spalding contains the visitor center and the largest grouping of sites.
  • Watching the stunning solar eclipse with family and friends at this beautiful park! Thank you for hosting, Nez Perce National Park Visitors Center!
  • Historical site well worth visiting in a scenic setting.
  • Awesome museum. Worth the stop it's free. The information you get is awesome.
  • A truly moving experience, both intellectually and emotionally. The history and culture of the Nez Perce are both fascinating. One of the most interesting things in the museum was labeled a "calendar" but the park person explained it as a "life or time line." It was a small ball of string with objects tied on at differing lengths. The objects were to "remind" the owner of significant events in their life or the life of the tribe. The string was unrolled to facilitate remembering an order of events. A fascinating way to keep an oral history not mentioned in Park materials. I felt fortunate to have been instructed by a female Park employee who belonged to the Tribe. Well worth a long drive.
