The Lewis and Clark Interpretive Centre opened my eyes as to the feats and hardships that Lewis and Clark encounteded on their journeys westward from St Louis to the west coast. I had of course heard of these two explorers, but did not know the depth or details of their journey westward from St Louis, nor of the relationship between Lewis and Clark. Their winterings (particularly at Cape Disappointment) along the the journey were fascinating as was their interactions with the First Nations peoples.
The Museum is well laid out with many opportunities for interactions for all ages. The location is superb, high on a cliff overlooking Cape Disappointment and the notoriously rough and dangerous Columbia Bar which didn't deter the First Nations canoeing expertise. We will return in the Spring / Summer and take advantage of the hiking / walking trails.
Definitely worth visiting when in the Astoria area.
