  • Awesome museum. Worth the stop it's free. The information you get is awesome.
  • Excellent exhibit of Nez Perce beadwork, a unique view into the past of the Nimíipuu.
  • 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.
  • Great museum.
  • I enjoy visiting Spalding, watching the video about the Nez Perce people, and learning more about the history, the collection of artifacts, and the people who are indigenous to this area. The visitor's center carries a collection of books, music, blankets, and a dictionary of the Nez Perce Language. There is also access to the Parks' archives but be sure to call ahead to make an appointment. Lots of culture and history relating to the Nimíipuu (Nez Perce People). Fun for the whole family!
