“Great trip through history”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The Lewis and Clark Historic trail and interpretive center is a "must see" museum for any visitor to the Great Falls area. It describes the journey taken by Lewis and Clark up the Missouri River in great detail with sound effects and artifacts gathered and preserved. The setting is on the banks of the river above the river walk area, so the view is breathtaking.

“You'll be happy you stopped by”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

I was absolutely blown away. I've been to other Lewis & Clark sites and this is nothing like any of them. You walk through the exhibits that take you through the entire journey and attempt to give you a feeling of what they were experiencing. The opportunity to revisit the mapping of the route west. Wonderfully displayed and easy to follow exhibits. If it's not to far out of your way, give Great Falls a visit.
