Extremely nice interpretive center -- pleasing architecture reminiscent of the shape of a Mandan earth lodge, well curated and attractive exhibits on the history of the area, beautiful plantings around the building, and all windows on one side for a view down to the river, nice gift shop, meeting room, bathrooms, etc. There is a walking path down to view...

This has a great picnic spot. A super view of the confluence of the Yellowstone and Missouri rivers...but otherwise, not terribly interesting to me. The Forts are more interesting, but it is worth a stop here to check out the view.

It's interesting. I would combine it with Ft Union a trading post. If not, take a pass. The staff is very nice. There's nothing to see outside. So don't go if you think you'll see some scenic view of the rivers combining. It's very disappointing in that regard.

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.
