Nice.

Very nice museum. Peaceful, paved walking path along river. We bought the combo ticket that also got us into Fort Buford.

Historically this is a major site, the confluence/trading post/fort that affected the entire upper Missouri, the tribes, natural resources including gold, exploration route to the Pacific. The museum is rather small but filled with interesting history. Fort Buford 2 minutes away.

We arrived bright and early July 5th. The place was deserted. I often wonder if the locals know what magnificent gems they have in their own backyards. We took the wAlk around the confluence, take the time to read about the area, it really adds to the experience. We saw muskrats working, many types of birds, ducks and geese. The... More

There is so much in the way of History where these two great rivers come together and form! The museum has artifacts you wouldn't be able to see or imagine without visiting!

If you plan to go to this site be sure to check the hours that the Interpretive Center is Open. It closed at 4:00 p.m. and I arrived at 4:15 p.m. However, all was not lost because the signage along the river was is so good and detailed. I'm sure the center would have been equally good.

The center and Fort Buford are offered as a pair for $5. The fact that the actual room where Sitting Bull surrendered makes it worthwhile. The lady at the fort was right on with explanations providing little or lots of info as the visitor wishes.

For those who love history and nature it is very good. There is nothing here that will blow you away with beauty by any means but is a nice building and there is a lot of information available. The gift shop was nice and had some affordable items for sale. The people working there were very courteous and the cost... More

Had a great day walking thru the site and reading up on the history of this area. The walk outside was even nicer as you are able to take in the views from the riverbank.

We spent so much time at the fort across the street which is where Sitting Bull surrendered...so by the time we got here, they were going to close but we got to go in the gift shop and watch a small film. Gift shop was tiny but well packed with best selection tshirts I seen in a long time. We... More
