  • This is a very interesting part of history not taught in schools. Very few people today would be capable of overcoming the difficulties and enduring the hardships that these men did.  more »

  • Wonderful museum detailing the incredible journey of Lewis and Clark. This is by far the best museum I have seen in Montana. Also the volunteers and staff were fantastic.
  • This place really gives you an appreciation for how arduous the journey was. Lots of details, you need more than one day to see it all.
  • This is a great place to visit and learn about the Lewis & Clark Expedition. There are lots of visual displays and authentic exhibits to look at. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable as well. I very much enjoyed the historical displays and the exhibits while my kids' favorite thing was Buddy the Newfoundland (representing Meriweather Lewis's dog Seaman) there to greet all the museum visitors.
