Weippe Discovery Center

The Weippe Discovery Center focuses on telling the story of the Lewis and Clark Expedition in Idaho and meeting the Nez Perce Indians on the Weippe Prairie, considered one of the most important in the Corps of Discovery sagas and best told in the place where it happened. A series of painted murals depicting expedition events across the Bitterroot Mountains are displayed around the center’s exterior, along with a map showing the now famous trail and campsites.

Inside you will see Nez Perce artifacts depicting their life in the region, replicas of tools used by the Lewis & Clark Expedition and representations of Idaho’s wildlife.

Take a stroll through the living landscape where you will find descriptive plaques and a variety of plants named and recorded by Lewis & Clark in their journals.


Public bathrooms, Free Wifi and cell service are all available on site.
