A small but highly informative museum about the history of the Missouri River. The location alone is worthwhile a visit. One of the treasures of this museum is the Winchester of the famous Chief Joseph who surrendered in 1877 at the Bear Paw battlefield.

Free to get into. Very interesting how things were done many years ago in the old west. Lots of history on the steam boats.

The staff were informative and were eager to answer all your questions! The grounds were really nice and the center had plenty to do and read, a great stop! Plenty of parking and a great place for a lunch!

I've never been to an exhibit where you can touch/pet/feel the animal mounts. It was interesting to feel what a rattlesnake really feels like (without the danger of getting bit) as well as other wild animal exihibits. It's not a particularly large exhibit but we found it to be a different experience than the norm, and even learned some things. It's nicely arranged and a good break from the heat. Nice people at the desk as well!

This is a small interpretive center but full of good information. There is a nice video offered. It is at the end of the river walk trail.

We were unable to fit a canoe trip through the Missouri Breaks into our vacation this summer, but this interpretive center provided a good overview of some of what that might have included. The exhibit area is relatively small, but there is also an interesting film.

Floated the Missouri from Coal Banks to Judith Landing camping three nights along the way. Spectacular Scenery with great campgrounds. The Visitor Center in Fort Benton makes a great stop before hitting the river. Stay at the Grand Union Hotel the night before and you will have had a most memorable time.

The center is well done and worth your time. There were also two personnel on duty who were able to answer questions about the monument and canoeing through it.

Small, but very well set up. Historic video is worth viewing. Very helpful Ranger. Go outside and walk down to the river; beautiful and very serene. There are informational signs all along the river walk.
