If your a history buff then visit. I would suggest some research on Lewis and Clark and a quick fly over when leaving the Williston ND area would be enough for most. The confluence of the rivers is nice but best viewed from an instagram photo.

This spot gives you a great view of the confluence of the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers, a key spot in early history. Lots of interesting displays concerning Lewis & Clark and the early forts built in this important historic spot.

Not much happening here in November. Although it was open, most of the exhibits were shut down for the season. Nice gift shop.

As part of following William Clark's journey down the Yellowstone River we planned to get as close to where it joins the Missouri as that is where he planned to rejoin Meriwether Lewis on their return trip east in 1806. We were very surprised and pleased to discover this wonderful museum as we followed road maps to as close to... More

The Missouri-Yellowstone Confluence Interpretive Center is a beautiful building with a wonderful view of the meeting of the two rivers. It is not a large museum, but the exhibits are interesting and there is a very nice gift shop. If there are not too many people in the building, I love to stand in the center of the room and...

We were following the Lewis and Clark trail and stopped here to view the confluence of the Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers. A short walk from the center took us to an overlook from which we could see the rivers merging. Photographers: a zoom lens works really well here since there are interesting features near and far.

If you're from outside the area, this is a well designed and attractive center that offers a wealth of information about the local flora and fauna. If you have just moved to the area or are passing through at just the right moment, they also offer concerts and a host of other entertaining activities. The people working there are very... More
