You are charged to get in. I guess that keeps out the riff raff. Its interesting but I think if they had something thats more virtual or visual - takes you back in time would be more helpful. Was there only once. As an adult, I did not find it help my attention. Daniel Boone Home - much more interesting.......go... More

My 13 year old and I went to this on a cold rainy day and enjoyed it a lot. The gentleman at this desk gave her a scavenger hunt and we worked to find all of the answers. You have to be willing to read or else you will walk around and be done quickly. My daughter loves history and... More

Stopped in with three young kids. They enjoyed the scavenger hunt, but that was about it. Not a lot to see. The workers were very nice and helpful. It's worth a stop but not a place I want to go to very often.

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museum showing dioramas of the original Lewis and Clark voyage, some replica tools and camp equipment, and some very outdated and worn out taxidermy mounts.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.
