Interpretive centers

Discover Washington stories at one of our interpretive or visitor centers. Experience the catastrophic Ice Age floods at the Dry Falls Visitor Center or retrace the journey of the Corps of Discovery at the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center. Peer through one of the largest amateur-built telescopes in the country at Goldendale Observatory or step inside a historic lighthouse at Cape Disappointment State Park.

Many interpretive centers are open year round, others are open seasonally.

Many interpretive centers are reopening in the spring of 2021 at a reduced capacity of 50%, or 400 occupants, whichever is less. Some will be open by appointment only and will require a reservation to visit. Please check the individual interpretive center web pages for details.
