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

We stopped here on our way to Fremont NE. I have all ways been interested in Louis & Clark travels. The center is full of displays of the Missouri River travels. There are 3 floors of very interesting displays for young and old alike. We plan to take our young grand kids there next summer.

Stayed in Nebraska City prior to a football game. Looking for something to do during the day before the game. Pleasantly surprised at how much information and history this center contained. Definitely a place to stop. Beautiful views of the Missouri River.

This place is an interpretative center coveinf the Jefferson period an Lewis and Clark. Wildlife that Europeans and Americans had never seen are shown here. A great mock up of one of the keel boats that was used in this first part of this adventure is on display. But don't miss the over look of the Missouri River and reminisce... More

What a beautiful building; its curb appeal rates high. We happened to be here during the Lewis & Clark Reunion weekend, so lots of extra things were going on at the center. There was a keelboat outside, with a period actor on board to tell us what travel on the river was like for Lewis & Clark. The center itself... More

We just came across this as we were driving and we needed a break. Just happened to be a free day so no admission. They had Living History demonstrations outside which were very interesting. Many activities geared to kids. Inside the exhibits were very nice. Interactive ones letting you know about treatments for diseases which you could test your knowledge.... More

A very nice visitor information center. Lots of good information and a useful historic film. Definitely worth the admission. I've been to Lewiston & Clarkston in Idaho/Washington but I really didn't know much. The Center helped with that. Some displays were interactive and hands-on. When they worked, those were fun. The medical diagnosis machine didn't always work (For one answer,... More

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
