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!
