“inspires awe and awakens curiosity”
Managed by the USDA Forest Service, the 25,000 square-foot building includes the permanent exhibit hall, 158-seat theater, an education room for hands-on curriculum-based activities, and a retail store. The center is handicapped accessible and offers parking for tour buses and recreational vehicles. Only guide dogs for the visually-impaired are allowed in the building, so please leave your pets at home. Several trails offer outdoor recreation opportunities in plants native to the Northern Plains. "The Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Interpretive Center imparts to the public a personal sense of President Thomas Jefferson's vision of expanding America to the west; it inspires awe and awakens curiosity toward the challenges faced by the expedition as they portaged the great falls of the Missouri River and explored the 'unknown'; brings to life the daily experiences of the expedition and the environment and native peoples of the 'uncharted West'; and celebrates the indomitable spirit of human discovery we all share."
This is a very well done little museum and you can tell a point of pride for the volunteers. I really enjoyed my time here and I thought they did one of the better jobs of telling the entire Lewis and Clark story.
