This is our second visit to this cultural center and museum. It is a good museum which highlights Native Americans and how the rivers impact lives. Lewis and Clark history is very interesting. This well worth the stop.

We held our company party here. It is a really good space, and can accommodate multiple parties without running into each other. They really need to address the funky carpet smell before we would use them again.

Several feet of snow made the Japanese Garden inaccessible, but we could appreciate its tiny, sheltered presence off the main hallway. Exhibits were informative and well formulated chronologically.

This is a great museum. The staff greets you then guides you down to a small theater where you watch a short film about the area. Then you get to walk through the museum. This is a very nice sized museum, with a lot of...More

I just used a GPS. You can look up this museum on the Internet and get the exact address and then check a map or use a GPS like I did.
