The Steamboat Bertrand Museum Collection is currently not on display. It had to be removed prior to the flood of 2011. It will remain in a secure off site storage facility until repairs can be made to the visitor center. A small selection of artifacts are available at the visitor center for visitors to see. Please check back periodically for updates on the status of the collection. See the Steamboat Bertrand page for more information.
