This is a very informative museum showing dioramas of the original Lewis and Clark voyage, some replica tools and camp equipment, and some very outdated and worn out taxidermy mounts. There are no artifacts from the original expedition. The museum mainly shows items (including the keel boats) from the 200th anniversary expedition that traced the route of the original Lewis...

My fiancée and I went here just to see what it was. We went in on a day when some of the people who had done the Lewis and Clark reenactment exhibition in 2006 (?) had come in, so we had a great time learning even more about what the river was like during that time, how it's changed, etc.... More

We have done nearly the entire Lewis & Clark route, and this is a terrific museum and historical site. Done simply so children of all ages can enjoy as well as senior citizens. The statue is quite similar to one we saw further west.

There are displays. There is a video. There are life-sized models of the boats that were used in the documentary film. It is a very complete and interesting coverage of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The staff is outstanding in their knowledge and enthusiasm

Lewis & Clark is located on Main Street in old town St. Charles and had been there for many years. They have a variety of food and drinks. I had a Rueben Sandwich that was absolutely delicious. It is a great place to sit and relax and have a great meal.

I took my relatives to the Lewis and Clark center and they really enjoyed it. It's educational and fun place to visit. We even enjoyed just being out on the deck. The ladies working in the gift shop were so personable too. There is a movie describing the Lewis and Clark trip that was good. They offer a AAA discount.

The Lewis and Clark Expedition was brought to life in this wonderful little museum and nature center. The artifacts, replicas and historical documents were all so interesting. We enjoyed the grounds as well.

The Lewis and Clark Boathouse and Nature Center (with full sized replicas of the river craft used!) was across the street so we visited it. Those boats were actually sailed up the River during the Bicentennial celebration. A great museum!! Of course! We love Lewis and Clark anyway (being from the Northwest and have visited Ft Clatsop ) So it... More

Small museum but very well laid out. We enjoyed the animal scavenger hunt and the boys received a Lewis and Clark penny for completing the paper. After looking at the garden outside we walked on a nice trail and were able to get great views of the river.
