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... More

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

There are two galleries. The one tells about local history and the other is an art gallery from a local artist. Neither one takes a lot of time to go through but worth it. Make sure you step outside to see the two rivers and birds. The gift shop is nice and reasonably priced.

We made special trip there as my husband an Eastern Montana native has been wanting to see the confluence of the Yellowstone and Missouri Rivers for some time. It was neat to see the confluence of the two rivers but truly there was no area high enough to get a good panoramic perspective of the rivers meeting. The Interpretive Center... More

We first came here on a long Lewis and Clark tour starting in St Louis. Our second visit was 3 years later. It is awesome to see where the Missouri meets the Yellowstone. The building blends well with the landscape and the exhibits are interesting and professional. The view from the back of the building is toward the river and... More

I was excited at the prospects of seeing where Lewis and Clark met up in April 1806 after splitting up in western Montana on the way back home. Clark took the route down the Yellowstone River and Lewis retraced their steps down the Missouri exploring tributaries they has not explored on the way to the Pacific. They rejoined together at...

Memorable, fun, outdoor activity. Paddlefishing can sometimes become quite adventurous as you are spearing a very large fish from the shore of the Yellowstone river. Seeing a fellow sportsman running down the bank is quite common as you try to bring in your catch. The Fish & Wildlife personnel are on hand to clean your prehistoric trophy for they are... More
