  • Super awesome place to visit, gift shop is a little small and the selection is lacking but pretty cool place to visit
  • Cool place to learn about Lewis and Clark. The exhibits are a quick run through, but the fort outside is an interesting tour. Last time I was there (about three weeks ago) the fort was closed for repair. A fun place to go with family.
  • Great info and very interactive for the kids.
  • Their official website hours are not correct due to no one knowing how to change it (no IT support). But luved the site's history. The staff was too cool. I even got talk with the museum manager about his two week adventure tour retracing the their route. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
  • Really enjoy the exhibits here and the rich history. The fort is very cool to go through!
