the best thing I got was why the Columbia River was so treacherous and the number of ship wreck that happened. Also the exhibit shows how the landscape has changed in the last 200 years.

The trails and views were beautiful. We really enjoyed the Museum with its thoughtful description af Lewis and Clark's journey and this point of their adventure. The hike to the lighthouse is worth the view!

Although we had just driven over from Fort Clatsop and seen the museum / visitor center there, I didn't feel as though this stop was redundant. The Interpretive center was full of great displays that both kids found very interesting.
As with Fort Clatsop, the fog, rain and wind helped us get the visual of what Lewis and Clark and co. had met with.
The down side was the parking fee and entrance fees...

The Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center was terrific. We've all heard or studied this trip, but now I really understand the magnitude and hardships endured.
