A visit to Big Hole is not only educational, it can be a lot of fun. In the summer you can help the park rangers put up and take down our tipi. There are all kinds of animals to see including our moose. You can hike, you can put on type of clothing that the Nez Perce and Soldiers wore here in 1877.
There are plenty of things to touch and hold on our Visitor Center touch table.

During the Bear Paw Battle, Colonel Nelson A. Miles placed a 1.65" Hotchkiss gun on the cutbank hill (left of the tree)to shell the Nez Perce and lay siege to their camp area. Hotchkiss shell and fuse fragments were found on this site and are housed at the Blaine County Museum in Chinook, Montana.
