  • We went to this but it was closed for the day. Sad, but we still got to look around and see the lovely views and surroundings. Hopefully we can get back there one day.  more »

  • This is right next door to the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center. There is a rest stop bathroom and playground in between the two buildings. We were thoroughly surprised by this welcome center, which is actually a historic boat! There are three floors to explore and much of it has been preserved. The controls are original and you can actually use them as well as ring the bell. Otherwise, you can explore the captain's room, office and bathroom. You can also learn more about the history of the Indians in the area as well. A gift shop is right there at the entrance for some goodies too. We enjoyed our walk through this cool museum.
  • Have been here twice. First visit was great so when on a trip to Sioux City with a group of friends, recommended it and we all had fun. Staff is so friendly and helpful!
  • Nice museum. Part of it is about riverboats and the other part about Lewis and Clarke expedition. Right next to a really nice walking path by the river. You also get to go in the pilot house and play with the controls and ring the bell.
  • Love it! Great place to bring your family for a look back into history.
  • The museum level is very dense with information about native Americans, early settlers, and river development. Very interesting for people interested in history. Not all that child-friendly. For child-friendly, go to the Louis and Clark interpretive center.
