The epic Lewis & Clark exploration of the great Louisiana Territory passed this site early in their expedition; the interpretive center gives great insight into the huge challenges & accomplishments of this expedition.

We are Lewis and Clark followers. We found this place quite by accident when we stopped at an information center across the river in Iowa. Glad we did. Two exhibits which I found interesting were the keel boat and the pirouge. The inside exhibits were interesting, but honestly, a little bit short of being very interesting. Talking with the staff we found that the main audience was school children, hence the type of exhibits. If you have never been here, it is certainly worth the stop; however, once is enough.

Really nice L&C visitor center / museum with three floors of artifacts, recreations, documents, photos and interactive stuff. I think every age group can find things they like. My 9 year old son liked the taxidermy and the "test your courage" mosquito display. My two 15 year old girls liked the art and nature displays and I enjoyed all of it and learned some new things about Lewis and Clark. The two docents were friendly and helpful on all fronts. $20 family price worked well for us, you might pay less depending on number and age. Your Nebraska parks annual pass will not get you in here.

Outdoors are some re-creations and trails that are also very nice. We especially liked the Native American earth lodge recreation. The inside was fascinating for us. The roof needs some upkeep. Perhaps they have not yet gotten to it after a number of severe storms this season, but the roof should be grass (and was grass at one point in time) and is now branches, woven natural materials with quite a bit of landscape fabric showing through.

The trails are fun - long enough for eveyone to appreciate the overlooks and nature, but short enough to take younger children. Although you can hear traffic noise from the interstate it is still spectacular to look over the Missouri River and contemplate what Lewis and Clark achieved.

So glad we drove the 3 miles off I29 to visit before heading west! A fully explained recreation of Lewis and Clark's expedition to discover the northwest. This visit helped us understand more of what we were seeing as we toured the US from St Louis to Seattle.

This attraction is not among the larger of venues along the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail, but is packed with an abundance of indoor and outdoor exhibits that tell of the trials and tribulations faced during the early days of the journey. This center is among the newest on the route and showcases the unique way that keel boats were used to navigate upstream in the unpredictable Missouri River. The center is located on the bluffs above the river and includes an outdoor interpretive trail and impressive views. Located on the outskirts of Nebraska City, the area is a wealth of history and full amenities.
