Excellent museum, knowledgable staff, and well kept grounds for experiencing all the areas history. The rivers are one of two "homes" worldwide for paddlefish.

Quiet place outside of town that is worth a trip to if you want to get away from the hustle & bustle in Williston. Educational and several more exhibits than I expected. The kids and I enjoyed it!

The center is more about the state of North Dakota than the confluence but there are several plaques outside that talk about the area and Lewis & Clark's trip through there. Not a lot to see but worth the stop anyway. It's a piece of history and the expansion of the west.

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.

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...
