This is the 3rd one we've seen on the Missouri. Sioux City is by far the best one but this one does have some good exhibits on 3 floors. It also had a few walking trails with one down to a overview of the Missouri.

It is clean, friendly and informative! Good travel stop. Stretch your legs and enjoy your history! There is a very accurate full size reproduction of the boats Lewis and Clark explored with when going up the Missouri River!

A really beautiful center for both adults and children. Highly recommend. Even those who are not Lewis and Clark enthusiasts will find it very interesting. The building on a high bluff looking out at the Missouri is beautiful, and the exhibits are great. The basement is set up for kids, but we adults found it interesting, too. Staff is very... More
