This was our first stop in Historic St. Charles. We were a little disappointed. We went up to the gift shop to see about the museum and they didn't even speak or see if we wanted to go inside. The cost was $5 for adults, I am not sure it would have been worth that anyway. But they could have said, "Hi" or "welcome", but nothing. :(

Worth a side trip for anyone visiting this historic town. A nice little museum packed with information and staffed by enthusiastic and knowledgeable people. One of the staff we spoke with participated in a reenactment of the full journey and had lots of stories and interesting tidbits to share. Don't miss the movie describing this amazing journey and be sure to visit the full-sized replicate boats downstairs.

Our family really enjoyed visiting here during Christmas. There are so many artifacts and lots of information about the Lewis and Clark expedition. The book selection is pretty extensive.

If you're a history lover, you have to check this out. I think it would be an excellent place for a field trip.. maybe for 6th grade and older? This really isn't for small children.

The museum costs a little to see everything but there's plenty to see for free.

Excellent Museum. Watch the Lewis and Clark Expedition here (included in the $5.00 admission price) instead of spending the additional $7.00 (each) to see the same one at the Gateway Arch. Lots of things to see for young and old, alike

If history lessons are your thing, you will enjoy it here. There are sorrounding things to do also. I would say for older adults not really a kid place.
