The Hanford Reach Interpretive Center, located at 1943 Columbia Park Trail in Richland, is a 24,000-square-foot building designed to tell the history of Central Washington's Mid-Columbia region.
The $3.35 million building's shape reflects the ancient floods that once covered the area, as well as Native American longhouses and Hanford's B Reactor.
It features exhibits on the Manhattan Project and the story of the region from the Ice Age through today.
It has two galleries, media room, a multi-purpose room, office space, and an entry hall that overlooks the Columbia River.
