At 30,000 square feet, the SLCC is an indoor attraction that accommodates physical distancing with ease. Inside the building, guests will discover towering cedar Welcome Figures, striking art installations and artifacts, a spacious gift shop experience, and goods from the Thunderbird Café that can be enjoyed in the Istken Hall, now set up for diners to take in the mountain views. Outside the SLCC, guests can explore the Salish Stroll, a crushed gravel path meandering our five acres of forest.

While indoor guided tours have been cancelled until further notice, Cultural Ambassadors will lead guided forest walks three times daily at 11am, 2pm, and 4pm. Guided Forest Walks will be included in Museum Admission.
