Very educational and fun. Kids can play a game to help them learn or you can walk through out to read about Lewis and Clark. The museum continues on the back side with a lot of Native American history in another part of the building. Very fun and kids don't mind learning.

Everything was closed up but we were enjoying having the place to ourselves on an amazingly warm winter day! We'll have to check it out a little more when it's open.

The Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center is interesting and educational for all ages. My students were impressed with the animated life-sized figures of Lewis, Clark, and Seaman the dog. Admission is a free will donation and plenty of parking is available. It's located by the river and adjacent to a public park with a picnic shelter and playground.

good exhibits and even animated figures. Pretty spot and nice architecture suggesting a keel boat. And did I say free?

Any history seeker of Lewis and Clark information should stop here! This center has a very good amount of information about the explorations of their team. This is a great stop for either traveling either direction, west to the headwaters in Montana or to the tail waters in Missouri.

This appears to be a fairly new building and if you are a history buff then this place is for you. Very well lit inside and everything very clean. Is not real large, so unless your going to read everything in there you can be in and out in a short time. Beautiful grounds with seating outside to enjoy it.
