Reviewed 12 June 2005

On our trip to the Northwest in May-June 2005, we stopped for a couple of nights in Great Falls on our way from Glacier to Yellowstone. We had become more interested Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery after visiting the Fort Clatsop Interpretive Center near Seaside, Oregon, earlier in the trip. When we found out that there was an even larger interpretive center in Great Falls, we knew we had to visit. And we were very glad that we did. This is one of the best organized and well-run small museums we have ever seen. Sitting on a bluff above the Missouri River, the centers large glass walls provide a great view. The displays are well arranged and the text is excellent--- allowing the visitor to skim or read in great detail according to interests. On the day we were there, the rangers and the numerous volunteers were perfect hosts, offering incisive details when we wanted, but never trying to alter the pace of our visit. This is definitely one site that is worth a little detour if you're traveling through the West.
