“The Trail Ends Here”
Reviewed 29 June 2012

Lewis and Clark's Expedition begins and ends here at this most interesting Museum. So many artifacts and exciting visual attractions hold one's attention for several hours. Probably two trips to do it justice. The visitor gets an excellent portrayal of the vast Oregon territoy from its discovery to the present. The mortrayal of Native Americans, full pun intended, remind us of over 5,000 years of their history. Take children.
