Center Sights - Upon Arrival
Visitors arriving at the National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center will enjoy a grand view that overlooks a well-preserved segment of the Oregon Trail. Its setting is the great sagebrush steppe between the Rockies and the Cascades.
Upon entering the Center's lobby, visitors will be welcomed and oriented by Center staff and volunteers. In addition to the 150-seat Leo Adler Theater and adjacent Flagstaff Gallery, visitors will find more than 11,000 square feet of permanent exhibits, an information desk, thematic sales shop, restrooms and the Center's administrative offices. There is no restaurant available on site. Information desk staff are available to answer questions about the facility or other area attractions, and to provide any other assistance necessary to make the visitor experience safe and enjoyable. Once oriented, visitors will begin their self-guided journey through the stunning life-size trail scene recreated in the Main Gallery, setting the stage for their journey along the Oregon Trail.
