This is what put this town on the map. Great history of the falls and the displays are very well done. Don't Miss the live lectures, they really give you an in depth historical picture. Great for kids and adults.

Spent the night in Great Falls on our way to Glacier. Stopped by the L & C center for a couple of hours. Great set-up and very informative. Recommend as a rest stop to anyone passing thru.
