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.
