Excellent museum focusing on the wildlife of the expedition more than anything else. Even full size elk and bison. Very clean bathrooms too.

Fun stop for kids to get out and explore. Educational. They have a couple little trails you can walk to a river overlook.

Don’t miss this beautiful gem in Nebraska. Great stop to learn about the Lewis and Clarke expedition. There’s interactive activities for the kids. Look out trails and breathtaking scenery. For us it was a total bonus that they are part of the National Park service! The staff is incredibly knowledgeable about the artifacts and books within. Great stop!

Cool stop to take a travel break and learn about the lewis and Clark adventure. Great exhibits and an excellent vantage point above the river.
We spent about 30 min here but could have spent 2 hrs reading the exhibits and another hour on the nature trails.

It's clean and informational, had it been run by a NPS I'd have scored it higher. The lady working there sat on her iPad the entire time.

This was an unplanned stop, we were just driving by and decided to go there to stretch our legs. I'm glad we did. It was very kid friendly with a lot of activities for them to do while learning a little about history. I would definitely recommend stopping here!
