  • The volunteers were great and came around to add to the awesome and informative, interactive displays telling the story of the Lewis and Vlark Expedition. Easy to navigate. Short movie reinforced the adventures we saw throughout the center.
  • I found this place on accident looking for a place to park. While there is a fee if you own a National Park Interagency Pass, it will get you inside. It's a great little museum along the Missouri River.
  • We met some wonderful people here. They were from the South. They were so interested in the Natives in Montana.
  • Very informative. Very well done. All of the staff that we met were excellent! Very pleased.
  • Execptionaly well​ done museum of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Complete story of the trip with entertaining explanation of the men, tribes,Land, wildlife. If you have any interest in the expedition you must see. The staff are wonderfully​ helpful too.
