This was the third Lewis and Clark museum we visited on our trip west. There were two different movies about the Lewis and Clark expedition, and wells as many artifacts. It was raining when we visited, so our time outside visiting the reconstructed Fort was quick, and we did not go down to the waterfront. If you are a fan... More

When in the Columbia Gorge River Area, I visited and enjoyed walking the botanical trail at the Lewis and Clark State Park on the Oregon side of this large and multi-site national and state park.

There are several separate areas on the WA and OR sides of the Columbia river that are part of the national park. Of course see the Fort Clatsop area. We also visited a portion of the park in the WA side and the views of the river and ocean are spectacular

Fort Clatsop is a replica of the fort Lewis and Clark built at Astoria. The site is well laid out and the telephone-linked tour is well done. The Visitor Center is well staffed and stocked and the rangers were very helpful. Well worth a visit.

This was an extremely well done museum, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The introductory video provided excellent information, as did the photos and information panels walking down to the theatre. We enjoyed walking through the museum and learning more about the Corps of Discovery and the trials and tribulations they went through. Sacawajea is a rock star!

We love going to NPS sites and this was not a disappointment at all! Once in the area, signs point you directly there so it's easy to find. Parking was not a problem for us on a Sunday afternoon, so that was nice. The visitor's center was small, but not packed and there was a small charge of $3 per... More

Loved the Cape Disappointment area! Very educational and a wonderful way to get to know the natural park area! So much I didn't know about the Lewis and Clark Expedition until visiting this site!

This was a family trip. We took our grandchildren. Our grandson was studying Lewis & Clark in school. He just loved all the exhibits, as did the rest of us. We all had a great time.

Part of American history, this Park is worth the time to educate your children. Not very big and easy to navigate, the staff are really informative and engaging. Be sure to partake of the tours and demonstrations.
