We decided to go because we've been on the Lewis and Clark trail several times in different states. The price included the fort. We learned a few things we didn't know. It was worth the time and money

The Staff were friendly and willing to answer questions. The exhibits are nicely arranged and fun to wander around and read about this time in history,

Perched above the Missouri River, this is an informative place to stop for a quick break, lots of information, and to take a few pictures. The statues out front are pretty cool!

The interpretive center contains a number of galleries with information about the Lewis and Clark expedition as well as the agricultural history of North Dakota and art by local artists. You can get a combined admission that includes Fort Mandan.

We enjoyed this facility on the whole. There were many interesting exhibits and it was well-researched. It appears to be a work in progress and I'd like to return in a few years to see what progress they have made.

This interpretative look at Lewis and Clark and the culture and lifestyles of the natives and settlers of North Dakota was a fascinating way to spend a rainy morning. The Mandan and Hidatsa tribes were integral pieces of this history.
