Missouri River Basin Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center
When Lewis and Clark passed by here in July, 1804 they were only a few months into their two year Corps of Discovery mission. The center focuses on the plant and animal life that the team studied and documented, and the specimens that were carefully preserved to be sent back to Washington. A large section concentrates on just the different types of fish, all unfamiliar to people living in the eastern US.
The interpretive center has three floors of exhibits, a theater, walking trails, a Plains Indian earth lodge and a keelboat.
The interpretive center is accessible. The keelboat is partly accessible. The trail to the earth lodge is paved but it’s very steep. Wheelchair users will need assistance. The lodge is accessible. The other trails are not accessible due to the steep grades and surface materials.
Long bus/RV spaces are located along the edges of the parking lot.
