It is clean, friendly and informative! Good travel stop. Stretch your legs and enjoy your history! There is a very accurate full size reproduction of the boats Lewis and Clark explored with when going up the Missouri River!

The building on a high bluff looking out at the Missouri is beautiful, and the exhibits are great. The basement is set up for kids, but we adults found it interesting, too. Staff is very... More
