Fun, informative center where I highly suggest seeing the film to get a good grounding before setting out on the trail! The exhibits are fun too, and if it is nice outdoors, the short outdoor walk to the river is fun.

Watching the 30 minute video brought to reality what we were taught in school so many years ago. It created a renewed interest in our country's growth and history. The building has additional displays that are historical in nature. Staff was knowledgeable and helpful.

It tells the story of Lewis and Clark, the army captains who led the Corps of Discovery expedition across the American continent when Thomas Jefferson asked them to find a river-route to the Pacific Ocean. There are good indoor displays,... More
