As one of the only physical evidences of the Lewis and Clark expedition, it’s just great to be part of that history. It’s amazing that it has survived in tact! Do spend time in the visitor center. The staff is super knowledgeable and friendly. The...More

We discovered this historic site in a guidebook and decided to go check it out. It was fascinating to learn more about the Lewis and Clark endeavor and to see this location as described in the famous journal. Great little museum!

This was an easy stop to make on my way to Yellowstone. It's easy to climb up on wood stairs and see Clark's signature. There's a nice museum with explanations about Louis and Clark. The day I went was a free day so no fees...More

I’d read about this in the Journals of Lewis and Clark. Easy access off I-94 with lots of parking. Very new and nice visitor center. Dogs not allowed up stairs to monument but lots of room to walk them Very nice

This was wonderful, such a historical site. They did a great job on the displays and walking around the monument was so relaxing and felt like we were right with Lewis and Clark in their discoveries. I highly recommend it.

Museum is well put together. Lots of interesting displays. The museum is handicap accessible, but to view the pillar itself is not. There are quite a few steps up to see the Clark signature, but well worth the climb, as you can also see the...More

This is where CLARK (of Lewis and Clark) found the Yellowstone River (longest US river without a damn) and Missouri come together and where Clark carved his name in the sandstone rock. BLM has done a very nice job of display and presentation of the...More

Even though Pompey’s Pillar is only 30 miles northeast of the large Montana city of Billings, it gets very few visitors and almost seems to be out in the middle of nowhere on I-94 -- which is in a way a good thing if you...More
