For anyone interested in Lewis & Clark, this is a "can't miss" attraction. There are exhibits aimed at kids, together with things for the grownups. The medical kit and supplies are fascinating - an exhibit stemming from the Expedition's only casualty, Sgt. Charles Floyd, who died on a bluff in Sioux City now crowned by an obelisk that looks like... More

Went with the kids, they enjoyed it. I wish I had more time to read all the information. Everything was done well especially when it's free it's amazing. The kids loved the passport stamping, It's worth your time to stop.

Very nice presentation and facilities. They have a 15 minute movie that tells about Lewis and Clark's journey. The displays are very well done and the outdoor displays are great. Stop here.

Free, interactive, informative, a modern museum telling a very specific story. Wish I brought my kids they would have liked it.

This was the second stop on our week long vacation. We had originally had this on our plan for Monday but we switched up the route to get here Sunday afternoon. So keep in mind it is closed on Mondays. It was worth it. We are traveling with two children ages 7 and 4. It is a museum that is... More

Helps to learn about our past on the River. No dislikes. Many stories and tales of our past heritage here in Soland.

This is a great museum. I know my kids would have really enjoyed the hands on, interactive experience had they been with me. The only complaint I would have is the disappointing gift shop.

There were tons of information about the expedition as well as lots of hands on (especially for the kids). 35 minute movie which was very well presented. Don't miss out!

The Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center is easy to get to, has ample parking, and is a free exhibit. There is really no risk to trying out - you're not shelling any money to check it out. The upside is pretty big - the presentation is well done, with a strong emphasis on kid-friendly exhibits. With a 12 year old... More

This is a great place to visit! It's a small but very well appointed centre with modern displays and even state of the art Disney-style animatronics! The staff and tour guides were friendly and extremely knowledgeable. There's plenty to see, so book as much time here as you can!
