This is an excellent museum with informative exhibits, a video and docents to tell you about life in the reconstructed fort. We totally enjoyed this visit.

The video in the visitor center gives you a clear idea of the Native Americans who lived here, and of their interaction with Lewis & Clark's Corps of Discovery. A visit to the re-created fort is a step back in time, and the period-costumed staff member gave excellent insight into life at the fort during the time the Corps spent... More

We enjoyed the small museum and pathway walk to the building! Give yourself at least an hour to check everything out.

Very nice National Park site with what they think was what the fort looked like when Lewis & Clark spent the winter in this area. Rangers did a very good job of playing the part of the and telling of what went on at the time Lewis & Clark were there. Great big Sitka Spruce trees on site although nothing... More

This was where Lewis and Clark wintered. Very friendly and informative. Guides dressed in period costume and very knowledgeable about the historical points.

Finally stopped here after years of passing by. A wise decision. This is a replica of the fort built by Lewis and Clark when they finished their 'cross country tour' of North America. Great site. Staff is wonderful, visitor center is laid out well, there is a small gift shop that is well stocked, and it is just an easy,... More

Doesn't take long to pay this National Park a short visit and the historical value is well worth the $3 entry. The film about Lewis and Clark was my favorite part.

We saw a demonstration of loading and shooting a musket, and there was a docent sitting in one of the cabins. Both were well informed and it was all very interesting.
