We were travelling by car from Bismarck, ND to Seattle WA, along the I94/I90 and caught sight of the turning to the Pillar. As Australians, we knew a little of the Lewis and Clark exploration and were pleased to find a genuine historic sight. One...More

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

Glad we tracked this down! Appreciated the dedication of the volunteer who stayed there in the heat to answer questions. If you go be sure to climb all the way up - the view is worth it.

Three of us took the walk up to see Clarks signature, it was well worth the 200+ steps in 90 degree heat. The view from the top looking over the Yellowstone River was beautiful. Was also neat to know that Clark honored Sacajewa's contribution by...More

As a way to kill some time, reluctantly drove the 30 minutes from Billings to Pompeys Pillar; glad I did. This site is located along the Yellowstone River, a place where Lewis & Clark as well as Custer camped. The tall "Pillar" is where Clark...More
