We spent an afternoon here. The staff is very dedicated and friendly. We saw two films and went through the exhibits. There is a ton of information. They also have worksheets for kids to use to explore the exhibit.

What a wonderful educational experience. If you thought you knew everything about the excursion go there you will learn more. A fabulous facility in a beautiful place on the river. Get the cheap Federal pass before the huge price increase while you are there.

My wife and I both thought the interpretative center was worth the time to stop and see. The short movie and the walk through displays were interesting and gave the upper reach trek of the L&C group pretty well.

Very modern and comfortable center located on the Missouri River overlooking Great Falls. Excellent exhibits explaining the Lewis and Clark expedition. Very comfortable auditorium with lectures and films. Excellent resource for adults and children. Walking trails along the river. A very worthwhile stop.
