This is a "don't miss" when you are in Great Falls. It is extremely well done, complete with docents, films (one by Ken Burns), and fascinating displays of artifacts illustrating the epic Corps of Discovery adventure.

Wonderful historical account of the Lewis and Clark expedition. You don't want to miss the 20 min. film as you first enter the museum. Nice walking space along the river just below the interpretive center.

Great center..very informative. We loved the way the center was laid out. The movies also gave us more insight to the perils of the adventure. I would hate to think we had to travel and pull our boats up the mountain. Make sure you hike...More

Lewis and Clark's voyage was epic. But even more interesting were the Native American cultures they encountered along the way. This museum did a good job emphasizing multiple parts of the story - so it was not only about a band of mostly white explorers...More

My husband is a history buff and enjoys the Lewis and Clark history so after leaving Glacier National Park we went to Great Falls to the Interpretive Center. First of all it didn't cost us with his senior park pass, which was a plus. The...More
