I can't say that I visited this because, this along with dionisio everything else in Montana, was under construction. But, while detouring past it, confused and bewildered by Montana traffic logic, it struck me as awesome. See it, at least for a manic 2 seconds.

What is with the chicken in the painting? Please, everyone, ask this question of the staff at this very well maintained mini museum to a crucial event in history. They must have spent a fortune on artifacts and the ticket prices show it. Situated in a backroom of a nice gift shop run by non Native Americans, they pour their whites hearts and souls into informing and entertaining. Far to go, but worth it.

Beautiful, well designed infrastructure (museum, gift shop, pathways, stairs, lookout, and toilets), but crabby staff. Actually, it seems everyone in Montana is ill tempered. A great view into the only material proof (in the field) that Lewis and Clark were where they said. Graffiti!

This is a fascinating place lacking wow factor. The museum, staffed by Americorps volunteers, does a superior job showcasing the man, the people, the group, and the history. If you are excited by words and cool exhibits, this place is a must see. But, if you need help via Disney or Hollywood glitz to enjoy a historical landmark, this place is a half snooze. Outside of the museum, the lands are about as interesting as a city park. The landscape is not gorgeous, but simply beautiful. The.original house, dating back to 1886 is great. We spent hours here but we were pretty much the only ones.

We stayed here the first and last night of our stay in the area. Newly renovated, it's better certainly but it's like putting makeup on a crack addict. The location is depressing and the other tenants too. Good to use as a springboard to other accommodation.

An interesting bit of Billings history through the house of a family that shaped the area. The guide we had, though he knows a lot about the house and family, was quite cheeky and too informal. I personally wasn't offended by his off color language, sloppy dress, sarcastic responses to genuine questions, and boastful nature. But, I know a lot of people who would. Local history professionals should meet a certain level.
