Great building great staff some interesting displays but certainly. Could use updating of displays while many of the items were interesting the placement of animal displays did not allow for any decent photography with an cell phone.

This is a great place to visit. Not only does it tell about the Lewis & Clark expedition, but it has hands on activities as well as moving and talking displays. The dog, Seaman, is especially fun to have bark and wag it’s tail.

We found the L&C Center a very interesting experience and we learned many things about their journey. We wished we had more time to thoroughly enjoy the entire facility. The statues outside were also very interesting.

Interesting presentations and certainly interactive (I'm a 65 year old kid). It seems everywhere along the Missouri River you can find a Louis and Clark stopping spot. A good place to take the kids particularly with the park grounds surrounding the Center.

Nice museum of the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1803. Many rooms full of artifacts and animated figures. Great for school groups. Very informative movie.

There are not many things for toddlers. Some exhibits have "Do not touch" signs. I would think that toddlers would not do well there.
