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.

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.

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...

This Center was such a surprise. The building is superbly built and houses an interesting array of artifacts related to the Lewis and Clark expedition. This collection centered on Clark's discoveries of fauna and flora on the trip to the Pacific. We also enjoyed the views of the Missouri River from the balcony outside and from a short trail leading... More

The best Lewis & Clark center. Well planned exhibits. Motion sensors to turn features on/off as you enter/leave areas. Designed with children in mind, but fascinating for old folks, too.

We had an hour late in the day. As 2 adults, this was interesting but nothing to go out of the way for. I think some of the exhibits would be good for kids since there was lots of active engagement possible. Trails on the property would be fun to explore if the weather cooperated.

We are Neb City residents and we have visited the Lewis and Clark Center several times when family or friends visit us. The center itself is situated on a hill and the views of the surrounding area and Missouri river are stunning. Frequently, you can spot hawks, eagles, deer and other fauna and enjoy the river vistas year round. The... More
