The museum was nice and warm for such a cold day. The shop was small but interesting and the staff was friendly and helpful.

The Park is beautiful and the tour is awesome! Our tour guide was David Price. He was a fountain of knowledge about the crossing and the area. He also has written a book, "Rescuing the Revolution" which is available in their store and since he...More

The Visitor Center is easy to miss as there was no signage that we could see. The introductory video about the crossing is interesting. Be sure to take a guided tour. It is only $6 per person. Our guide (David) was very knowledgeable and had...More

I do believe there are parts of the park that are handicap accessible. I would call the park directly-they do have a ranger station.

Absolutely - the outdoor portion is very much accessible, and there's a ramp for getting into the visitor's center. The visitor's center is very much accessible, wide open spaces in the interior. Enjoy!
