Nice, little FREE visitors center. Displays of gear used by smokejumpers in the field plus a mockup of a tower. Small basement display as well. Various merchandise for sale. We did not go on the tour due to time constraints in our schedule, but it sounded interesting. NOTE: the center is located outside of town past the airport, not where the pin shows it in the downtown area. We were headed out that way anyway so it was no big deal.

Unfortunately this place is closed due to COVID... not sure why. If mask are required and you allow less on tour to spread out more seems a bit of over kill to close it.
Plus the address is wrong on here see the picture for right address.

This was a pleasant surprise. From the outside it wasn'twhat I expected, but once inside it had a lot to look at and some cool information. If we had more time we would have taken the guided tour. FYI, the map is not accurate, it is past the international airport.
