I was there before the doors opened, but by the architecture of the building and the displays outside; very impressed! The boat and the statue next to the entrance were enticing; making a person wonder how it was like back in the day of Lewis & Clark. A hidden treasure for sure.

We've visited before by ourselves but this time we were traveling with our seven-year-old grandson. He loved this place. From steering the "real" keelboat and watching the "river," to having the grizzly appear behind the window, the exhibits were amazing. He didn't want to leave. Neither did we. We stopped again on another trip and brought our purchased Runzas to... More

After spending the majority of the day at the Arbor Day Farm & Lodge, we discovered this wonderful Interpretive Center that focuses on the adventures and exploration of Lewis and Clark. It is nestled in a beautiful natural landscaped area near the Missouri River by the state line of Nebraska & Iowa in the heartland of America. We had two... More

Great if you are interested in Lewis and Clark's adventures. Lots of interactive stuff to keep the kids occupied while you browse about and learn some interesting stuff about their journey.

This is a small museum. It is new and has many hands on activities for children. The gift shop is very small and very expensive. The trails are not long but quite steep. It was also very humid the day we visited. The view of the river was nice.

I had been here a couple of years ago and it is a pretty nice visit. There are lots of walking trails around the building and a couple of floors in the building to see.

This place is just super if you have a couple hours to view, read and do a quick study of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Nice location, fairly new and VERY educational.

The kids enjoyed steering the boat and all of the little interactive games through out this place. I would definitely stop back by.

We sort of stumbled on this wonderful museum by accident. Nebraska is wonderful in many ways, but one of them is that there are not signs littering the highways. The negative side of that is it is easy to miss this interesting place!! At any rate, the museum/visitor center is 3 floors, the bottom floor being specifically for children. They... More

The Missouri River Basin Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center was a delightful surprise and worth a stop for an hour if you are passing through Nebraska City. There was full size replicas of boats used by the Expedition,with one being interactive which was popular with kids. The Center focuses on the Missouri River part of the Expedition and does a...
