Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, Great Falls, Montana, USA
Re-live the 1804-06 Lewis and Clark Expedition’s 8,000-mile journey across western North America in the comfort of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Interpretive Center. Built into a scenic bluff with spectacular views of the Missouri River, the Center’s exhibits and ranger programs bring alive the indomitable spirit of exploration. Entry fee is $8.00; children age 15 and younger are free. Federal passes (Annual and Senior,) are sold and honored. Military Pass, Access Pass, and 4th Grade Pass is also issued and honored (documentation required to obtain Military passes).
Start your indoor journey with one of two introductory videos in the 158-seat theater with wheelchair-accessible seats and open captioning. Then, join a ranger for a program or explore the many hands-on exhibits in the Center, operated by the USDA Forest Service since 1998.
The self-guided exhibit hall’s centerpiece is the two-story diorama of the portage of the Missouri River’s five great falls. Test your strength pulling a boat against the Missouri’s current. Enhance your journey with a 30-minute audio tour available in English, Spanish, French, German, and Japanese. Or choose the optional 45-minute audio of actors portraying William Clark and George Shannon reminiscing 20 years after the expedition – available in English only.
