The displays at this historical display were very well done and there is a lot of information about the Lewis and Clark Expedition. This is well worth a visit for youngsters and for adults, both.

Spent a little free time going through the museum and watching some of the video playing in the theater. Great exhibits. The dioramas were spectacular and obviously took quite a bit of time to construct. Nice gift shop and the folks there were friendly...maybe a little too friendly. I almost felt I was in the way of their personal visit.... More

Great little hidden gem in St. Charles historic district. Don't miss it. Good exhibits that brings history alive. Great for children, too.

This place tells you about the river, the American Indians, the settlers, the explorers. They have boats underneath that were made by local people from this area. I think it was very interesting and all children should learn about our city's past. Lewis and Clark came through here.

If you are in Saint Charles Missouri, you will not want to miss out on a visit to this place. Learn about the history of the area and overlook the magnificent Missouri river.

Its a cool little building with a nice gift shop right up the stairs/elevator. You do have to pay to go and see the museum which is on the smaller side. But of your looking for a quick thing to get a history lesson in then this is the place. The gift shop has some really nice older type toys... More

The room with artifacts or examples of this earlier time is small. They do have a good movie to watch that teaches some things that I didn't learn in school. The guides were very knowledgable and had lots of information to share about the history of this part of the country. They offer a military discount, so just ask.

Cute little museum along with a gift shop. Frontier park where the museum is located is a great place to sit and enjoy the views. The Lewis and Clark statue with their dog is pretty . It is also close to several stores for shopping and several dinning choices. The staff at the museum are very friendly and polite.
