On July 1, 2000, The Oregon Trail History and Education Center began operation. The 10,000 sq. ft. facility located at Three Island Crossing State Park, Glenns Ferry, Idaho, is a place where visitors can explore the multifaceted story of two cultures that shared common ground at this Snake River crossing.
The Center features exhibits illustrating Native American life and their interaction with pioneer emigrants on the Oregon Trail (past and present), a conference room, a theater showcasing an orientation film about the three island crossing, a temporary exhibit room, a future genealogical library, and a gift shop.
Hours of operation - Sunday - Friday 10am to 4pm, and Saturday 9am to 5pm. Admission - Adults $3, Children (under 12) $1.50, $2 Park Entry Fee per vehicle.
This center is possible thanks to the collective endeavor by the Glenns Ferry community, the Shoshone-Paiutes, and the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation.
