We stopped at the Missouri River basin. It is NOT state operated but private. There is an admission few. Which we decided not to do. However, we enjoyed the view of the Missouri river valley. The building is well maintained and friendly staff.

Intersting displays,information on Lewis and Clark expedition from 1804 to 1806. Well worth the time to see. A couple of hours is needed to see it all. Lots of free parking and some walking paths from museum to use also.
