  • The Boathouse is so interesting. Adults learn so much and children are fascinated with the history and the scavenger hunt for different animals throughout the museum. My grandchildren love it. We rece...  more »
  • I love the legend of Lewis and Clark. So when I went to run the Katy Trail in St Charles Mo, I stumbled into the L&C Boat House. This is small, and focused on the boats they used. Informative and you ...  more »
  • I'm afraid that this is pretty lame. It cost $5 each adult to get in and was not worth it. Displays were dated and/or silly. There was some interesting info but not for $5 each. It took us maybe 15 mi...  more »

  • Very calm, quaint museum with a simplistic and rustic set up. Provides a nice little overview of the Lewis and Clark expedition and has a great outlook over the river. Good place to stop for an hour or so with a partner, friend, or kids. The gift shop is well stocked with fun souvenirs and books. I found some nice arrowhead and crystal jewelry, if you are interested in collecting them. The owners and operators are very friendly and sweet, and so is their elderly dog. Stop by for an easy, relaxed summer afternoon activity.
  • Was ok stop. Gave kids a sheets to hunt for animals. Unfortunately didn't leave us much time to look kids were bored. Had a display with villages etc but so juvenile. I could have done a better job. Place was clean and worker was very friendly.
  • A beautiful museum on the banks of the Missouri river! The volunteers are all very knowledgeable and the replica keel boat is pretty amazing to see first hand.
  • Costs $5 for adults and $2 for children. Basically just one large room with diaramas and stuffed animals. There was some historical artifacts, but mostly it felt like a poorly executed museum. A stark contrast to the quality museums in St. Louis which are mostly free.
  • Fun place to learn history. Great place to go hiking.
