Lewis & Clark interpretive center was very interesting. Great displays & great access to walking path. The main theater wasn't open but they had a smaller room with a short program on a dvd. They have audio headsets you can rent.

There was a very educational movie by Ken Burns that laid the groundwork of information. Then we moved through the museum proper on a winding self-tour. We liked it very much.

Fascinating display. Walking through leads you chronologically to displays for each stage of the Lewis & Clark expedition. In addition, opposite the expedition displays are exhibits of Indian culture from the same period. It took us a couple of hours to wander through. Fascinating.
