We enjoyed our visit. It was built in 2004 but looked like new. Very educational with 3 floors of hands on displays that all worked. There was a 30 minute movie that was good also. There were two big displays outside and trails with one leading to the Missouri River. It was geared more towards children but still enjoyable. It... More

I was very disappointed with this establishment, they had open hours until 6, we got there at 5:30 and the doors were locked and nobody would open up the door for us...... Completely unprofessional

Enjoyed the trails, but they were not being maintained and overgrown in places, and not enough information about them. "Birding" Trail Code should have mentioned "Wood Mulch surface, 790 ft in length"... straight down (or up) in the places. An unexpected climb in places. The L&C center was a beautiful building and nice overlook to the river, but the exhibits... More

Very beautiful building and some nice history. But limited in what they present and not that interesting. The film did a good job explaining the expedition, but pretty low budget museum.

Husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our two hour stop at the Lewis and Clark Interpretative Center. The exhibits, signage, and interactive nature of the center greatly enhances the visitor experience.

Outside the center is a river boat, similar to what L & C used to navigate the Missouri River. Inside the center, plenty of hands-on stations allow kids and adults to experience the animals, insects, and difficulties of the heroes' trek.

We went on a chilly and rainy day before we started back to the East Coast, but it was pretty fun. It is kind of small, but the three floors of exhibits are interesting. Our boys loved the animal displays, being able to punch their cards at every exhibit, the sound effects and the history on the walls. The ladies... More

We have stopped at many Lewis & Clark museums in our travels. This one definitely rivals the best. It is very focused on the flora & fauna they discovered & studied on their travels. Very good displays.
