Missouri River Basin Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 4 March 2012

We drove past the signs at first, but when we caught sight of the magnificent building- we had to stop. The first thing you see (outside the building) is a replica boat just like Lewis and Clark's - which you can board, this makes for some great photos. Our children were instantly excited (age 15 & 11).
Fee- The Center does not have an fee to enter, but rather a donation site that you can contribute. The Center is built looking over the Missouri River, the view is like no other in Nebraska. It is very hilly and unexpected -not flat at all.
To Do- There are some interactive questions and answer games which explain what the crew ate, the tools they carried and the writings of Lewis and Clark. The upstairs is full of information and you can touch almost everything -excluding the taxidermied, indigenous animals. They have a boat inside that the children where able to row. The downstairs was for very small children, just a peaceful place to roam.
Hike- They have some small outside exhibits like a trail and a sod house.
Time- You could see it in less than an hour if you were pressed for time, or take up to 3 hours and see all the inside and outside sites.
Gift shop- Yes, and it's a good one!

If you are not that much into history, even the low entry fee would stop you from going in. The displays were quite good, informative. The building itself is very pretty. But as non-history buffs, we actually found the walks around the place more interesting. Especially to see the flooding of the Missouri River.

My husband and I went to the Center expecting to spend an hour or two, and ended up staying for four hours. Through the use of exhibits, displays, reproductions, and picture/story boards, the Center provides informative, thorough coverage of Lewis & Clark's amazing journey. There are many interactive areas designed for children to explore, all relevant to the displays. However, the Center is not designed for small children. A family came in with two young children, about 2 and 4. They stayed only long enough to look at the full-sized replicas of the boats and a couple of other displays, and then they left. Perhaps they were able to take advantage of the wonderful trails the Center has around their grounds, which are available to anyone without paying admission. Some of the trails are strenuous, but they're clearly marked. Inside and out, this is an excellent place.
