Keeping us all safe

Our priority is to maintain a safe environment for visitors, staff, and volunteers. Please read for details about health and safety precautions:

  • Face masks are encouraged but not required for all visitors regardless of vaccination status.
  • MNHS sites reserve the right to request masking in areas where social distancing is unavailable, in confined spaces, or in areas with limited air circulation.
  • We are conducting enhanced cleaning of high-touch surfaces and providing hand-sanitizing stations for visitors.
  • Social distancing is encouraged.
  • If you are feeling sick, have flu-like symptoms, or have been in contact with someone who has recently had COVID-19, please visit us another time.

  • Canoes are welcome on the Snake River! Boat landings are located two miles up or down river of the site. Canoes are not available for rent; please bring your own.
