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!

This is a "hands on " experience for learning about this area as it was as Lewis and Clark passed through on their journey of discovery . Be prepared to be amazed by what you did not know about their journey of discovery and the human endurance and challenges required of it . Next door visit the presentation of American... More

I've visited many of the L&C centers across the country, and this is one of my favorites. I visited alone, but it's especially great for kids. The exhibits are really interactive and the staff is friendly and helpful. It's also in a beautiful location along the Missouri River. Make a stop here if you're traveling on I-29.

I like to take every opportunity to see places like this. I was in the area for business and spent about 60 minutes here. It was worth my time.

We were pleasantly surprised with our visit to the Center. There were three exhibits there, one showcasing the barns of Iowa, another the very sweet children of the reservation and a great, interpretive/interactive area covering the Lewis and Clark expedition. This was a super hands-on area for the kids, helping them learn and enjoy the visit as well.
