I brought a group of students to the center for a field trip. The students enjoyed learning some area history as well as having lots of hands on activities. The center's staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating to our groups needs. Thanks again for a great day!

We all loved this place! Fun way to learn about history. Lots of interactive activites as soon as you walk in the door.

My nephews were mesmerized by Seaman the Dog barking and spent a lot of time there! Great place to take two boys (4 and 7). They even watched the movie. They loved all the activities and it's free! If you don't have little ones with you, you can spend hours going through the history.

I am in the process of following the Lewis and Clark Trek from one end to the other. Sioux City was a wonderful stop on my journey. The galleries were beautiful and the artifacts helped me to picture what this group went through. It was a very enjoyable afternoon.

The initial video presentation in the theatre was impressive, with lots of historical information. We enjoyed touring the interpretive center, with all of its interesting exhibits. Best of all, it was FREE!

This was a very informative site from the moment you walk through the door. The staff is very knowledgeable. I could have listened to them all day. Their enthusiasm for their work and their love of the exhibit was evident. There are actually two exhibits. One is Lewis and Clark and the other is about natives of Sioux City. The... More

This is a nice family friendly museum. There's an interesting movie. Interactive activities for kids, but with good information. I enjoyed the interactive center too. Galleries with beautiful and appropriate photography. It's right on the river and the grounds are lovely

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
