The center is well done and worth your time. There were also two personnel on duty who were able to answer questions about the monument and canoeing through it.

Small, but very well set up. Historic video is worth viewing. Very helpful Ranger. Go outside and walk down to the river; beautiful and very serene. There are informational signs all along the river walk.
