Floated the Missouri from Coal Banks to Judith Landing camping three nights along the way. Spectacular Scenery with great campgrounds. The Visitor Center in Fort Benton makes a great stop before hitting the river. Stay at the Grand Union Hotel the night before and you will have had a most memorable time.

The center is well done and worth your time. There were also two personnel on duty who were able to answer questions about the monument and canoeing through it.

Small, but very well set up. Historic video is worth viewing. Very helpful Ranger. Go outside and walk down to the river; beautiful and very serene. There are informational signs all along the river walk.

Great overview of the Wild and Scenic Missouri Breaks National Monument. A must stop if you are planning on floating the river. Friendly staff with a wealth of free information. Nice exhibits. Exhibits are free with a NPS senior pass or with a receipt from the local museums other wise the exhibits are $5.

We were really impressed by the staff - really helpful. For example, they told us where to go to get the best photograph/view of the River Missouri, which I really appreciated. The museum itself had some nice artefacts and displays, and an interesting 20 minute documentary video. Worth visiting.

We pulled into town and happened upon this gem. It is a very nice facility. Lovely grounds. Clean restrooms. Nice walks on the ground. Very informative and interesting displays on the history of the area. It looks like a cool little town too. We will have to schedule a return trip.

Came here on a whim when visiting in the Great Falls area, because of the Lewis and Clark history. Learned a few new things about the expedition as well as about the paddlewheelers that came up to Fort Benton from St Louis back in the late 1800s. After seeing the Interpretive Center, we drove down Front Street, stopping to walk... More
