Fort Peck Interpretive Center opening with modifications

Published July 15, 2020

FORT PECK, Mont. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Fort Peck (Montana) Interpretive Center will open Monday to visitors daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Interpretive Center has implemented several CDC recommended COVID-19 safety precautions including: visitors are asked to wear masks; remain six feet apart from others outside their households while in the building; follow the one way travel path marked throughout the building. Building occupancy will be limited to 50 people.

Interactive displays which have been a highlight of this facility have been removed or closed - including the children’s room due to health concerns. Visitors are asked to not touch the displays. We request that groups of 20 or more call in advance to coordinate their visit. Powerhouse tours are not available at this time.  

In keeping with Montana Governor Bullock’s and CDC guidance, visitors with fever, shortness of breath, a cough or other COVID-19 symptoms are asked to stay home. In addition, frequent hand washing or sanitizing is strongly recommended.

The Interpretive Center schedule is subject to change in response to health and safety guidelines, staffing levels or other unforeseen circumstances.

Questions can be directed to the Interpretive Center at (406) 526-3493, or the Fort Peck Project office at (406) 526-3411, or check Facebook @USACEFortPeck.
