This is a small museum, but many interesting artifacts. The staff members were super friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed the video, as well as the boat models. The view of the river is spectacular.

Visited the Lewis and Clark Boat House with our family of 6. The film/documentary is very good and informative. We really liked seeing the replica of the keel boat and the other displays.
