The center is the tell all center for everything Lewis and Clark. Lot of reading, and some interpretative manikin displays tell you everything from the state of the expedition all the way to the end. Including the death of Sgt Floyd. A must see if you want to learn about these great men and the growth of America.

Many of the displays are designed to engage visitors - particularly kids - in the experiences of the Corps of Discovery. It also had a good exhibit on flooding in the area over the years.

My wife and I visited since this was highly recommended in Trip Advisor. I was a little disappointed frankly. The facility is beautiful and the staff very friendly and helpful but the exhibit was haphazard and in my view did not tell the story very comprehensively or chronologically which is what I was looking for....But, it has numerous interactive learning...

This was a pretty nice place. It was in good shape and the guy at the front desk was very helpful. The only *slight complaint that I had was that Sacajawea's eyes weren't painted! :) They have anamatronics for Lewis and Clark, as well as a dog. Everything is interactive. Good place to go with friends or kids.

Very interesting. Well done and informative. Free State operation and worth a stop. Detailed explanation of the Sgt. Charles Floyd death and burial.

It isn't large, but it is incredibly well done, and very interesting. It is totally worth the time, regardless of your interest in history.

This is a small, modern, highly-interactive museum that would be great to teach upper elementary kids the history of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Mildly interesting for the rest of us. Worth a stop, and it's free!
