This nonprofit museum and interpretative center is well-established and growing. I've driven by many times over the years. I finally had the time to stop and visit in July 2014. At first I was put off by the admission price, then after using the restrooms they had graciously offered, I decided to pay the modest admission price. For the next... More

We did not plan to stop here, but we are glad we did. we saw the signs on the way by and decided to check it out. A great museum center with good hiking paths. If you are in the area you should definitely stop for a visit !

Much to see and do inside and outside of this architecturally beautiful building. Lots of fun buttons and things for kids to do and adults to read.

Stopped here randomly on trip from Omaha to Kansas City and was disappointed. The boat outside is cool to see but when we went in the lady at the counter rudely says "bathrooms and gift shop are free but everything else is part of our admission fee." I ask how much and she says nothing so I have to find... More

I loved that it was kid friendly. The man working the desk was wonderful. The kids had buttons to push and things to check out to keep themselves busy while adults can enjoy also. We did the three shorter hiking trails and had lots of fun.

I drugged my husband to this site. He thought because of the low fee, it was not worth seeing....what a surprise. We had the place practically to ourselves. There is a small movie and much to see explore throughout the museum. It is well displayed and contains much information about the Lewis and Clark Expedition and the discoveries they made.... More

We got in the car on Memorial Day afternoon with no destination in mind. Stumbled across this hidden gem, it has 3 floors of exhibits, artifacts and documents, laid out very well and a 30 minute informative film that was wonderful. I wish I had written down the name of the gentleman that greeted us, he was great...friendly and informative... More

It isn't real big, but has a lot of great information. It only took us about an hour to go through, although I'm sure we could have stretched it out a little more as we don't tend to read everything or interact with the interactive exhibits. We also hiked to the earthen hut & the Missouri River overlook.

Although I understand there is a much larger Lewis and Clark museum near Soux City, this is a nice little museum that highlights the wildlife that the discovery team found. It also highlights the type of vessels the crew used to complete their trip. A nearly full sized replica of their main barge is in front of the building. Inside,... More

Very educational. Ask questions while you're there. The staff is very helpful and full of great information. Great place to take elementary school kids who are learning about American History.
