      Missoula is home to the largest Smokejumper school and base in the country. The visitor center has a museum, a memorial, and even some interactive exhibits. A smokejumper loft and a fire watch tower are also on the site. When no active fires are burning in the region, you can even see some of the aircraft they use. Free tours are given daily.

      If you go:
      You should call ahead before going to the center to be sure it is open. During the active fire season the whole team might be out on duty, so the center is closed.
