Stop here when visiting Fort Mandan. Helps to put the fort into historical perspective. Can see exhibits and the Fort easily in afternoon.

This Interpretive Center is larger than the Visitor Center at Fort Mandan, and gives a fuller presentation of what the Lewis & Clark Expedition was all about. Single admission fee covers both this facility and Fort Mandan. Enjoy!

Well curated exhibits, with some neat hands-on items for children (including one where they can digitally 'color' a picture related to the exhibits and print it out to keep, for a small fee). The Bodmer print collection was great to see, as it is a rare opportunity to see all of the prints together in one place. Nice observation deck.... More

Wife want to check this out because she saw signs on road. They need better signage to drum up more travelers.

Took the fort tour and found... More

If you are Lewis and Clark buff or just a casual history fan this will be an entertaining stop for you. Well done exhibits and a view that goes forever. Spend at least an hour to absorb but could take 2-3 without trying to hard. Other history sites close by can make for a full day of entertaining education.

Nice facility. Provided some nice background on ND history. Lots to read, more than I wanted to go through. Some additional interactive exhibits would have been nice.

A good place to stop on the passage between Bismarck and Minot. You'll learn about some unsung heroes of westward expansion and the Lewis & Clark track. The staff is very knowledgable and incredibly willing to explain things. They have a decent collection of artifacts and replicas.

We visited the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center and Ft. Mandan. We have a newfoundland dog so it was of great interest to us as Lewis & Clark traveled with a Newfoundland Dog. The Interpretive Center has a very nice display to walk through.
