This museum sits on a bluff overlooking the river, and features dramatic floor to ceiling windows. The video is well done and helps refresh your memory as to Lewis & Clark's amazing journey. It is socially conscious in its treatment of women and native peoples. The exhibits are detailed and extensive, offering artifacts and facts that really help you envision the challenges faced by the Corps of Discovery. Take the time to experience any outdoor demonstrations that might be offered during your visit. We saw firestarting and flint musket re-enactments on the river's edge that were fun and educational. The trail down to the river takes you by native plants and trees that serve as a habitat for many birds, bunnies and (according to the signs) a snake or two ;-) All in all, this is a high quality, well managed museum--well worth your time. Don't miss Giant Springs either, a beautiful, relaxing park (and fish hatchery) just a quarter mile up the road (or river trail). It would make a perfect picnic spot, if you pack a lunch. Enjoy!
