REVIEWS OF Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center IN North Dakota

Mark Jantzer

The Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center is a must see place along the path of the famous explorers. Learn about their expedition, the interaction with the Indians, and enjoy the beauty of North Dakota along the Missouri River. A gift shop and convenient restrooms are another reason to stop, walk the grounds, and learn some history.

James Strandberg

The great historical site to see and how history was made through Lewis and Clark on their Adventures to an all water route to the West Coast and how they went to North Dakota and and discovered it back in there 1804 and the trip back at 1806 pretty interesting you get a chance you need to come up to North Dakota and see everything you need to take adventurous trip and it's a good vacation time to explore North Dakota it's got a lot of beautiful surroundings and Hicks darkle of How the West Was Won and all about wildlife and nature

Bryce Hamblin

This place had a lot to see. The exhibition was awesome with art and history put into the place. The place was so interactive and is on par if not better than most of the National Parks exhibits which I love. This is a must stop for visitors coming in especially if you follow the Lewis and Clark exhibition.

Dan Boelsche

Wow...what a wonderful stop! The displays are the confluence of art and well-written and researched history, with principle focuses on the Missouri trade, Lewis and Clark Expedition with Sakakawea, and the Plains Indians of this part of North Dakota. The Shelden and Bergeson Galleries within are tops -- U.S. national treasures!

DyAnn Carlson

This place is really cool. They have a small museum there, a really nice gift shop, conference room, medium size ballroom that opens out onto a big deck which overlooks the river, research library, statues out front, a garden in the summer where they grow native ND vegetables & many acres of land to explore. I love stopping here whenever I'm in the area.

sam cooper

The Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center just had new exhibits installed (Jan. 2012). The exhibits describe President Jefferson's motivation for sponsoring the expedition, Clark's journal entries can be experienced via an audio kiosk, there's an interactive exhibit describing the supplies they took, and much more. It's worth visiting and experiencing!

Really nice place. Peaceful sleeping overnight. Cant accommodate many trucks. Nice view to the west


Besides being able to stop here 24/7 to be able to use the restroom, they have wonderful displays about the area and the people who lived here. The history of Lewis and Clark among other interesting facts about the fort which was built and how the Indians helped these pioneers.

Bethany Hildebrand

Very nice place to stop and stretch your legs and your dog's legs too

Tuesday Shaw

We stopped here and mostly for the bathrooms, but the museum is very nice too.

Trindarae Dawson

Terry and I

Our RV Adventures

Give it three stars because the restrooms are clean, good parking for RVs and nice sculpture art outside. Did not go in because we had limited time and the cost is $8 per adult. The items in gift shop were nice however also expensive. From what I could see it looked like nice exhibits and would probably spent some time going through the center if it was $3.

Christie Lynn Henderson

Bathrooms have been very clean each time I have stopped by. The museum and Fort cost a few dollars to tour. I believe I saw something about them have room to host some events. Sorry no pictures as I left my phone/camera in the car to walk around... Next time I'll probably remember.

Vicki Darnell

Husband and I enjoyed our short trip here at the end of the day. Wonderful exhibits, educational information, gift shop, and staff. Definitely worth a visit when you are in North Dakota.

Lavonna Skeans

I would have liked to have seen more about their winter here and their return visit. I think all the centers should just tell the story of the trio up until that spot. Kind of let each interpretive center be like a continuation from the last. This would encourage people to tour the entire trail.

Aaron Klein

It's good but I think it could be better.

Frank Kurek

Great place! I hope our Park's system never loses funding.

Manuela Van der Steen

Fort Mandan, Washburn, ND

Mitzi Hager

Very well done and worth a stop to see.

Anthony Frausto

Awesome! More specifically: the staff is friendly and the place is clean. Easily accessible pamphlets provide information on the expedition and the exhibits are well organized and explained. [vvv] The fort itself (off-site) offers an view into what living conditions were like, and guided tours are available that I assume go more in depth, but I didn't have the time to wait. [vvv] When all is said and done, there is a gift shop offering expedition related books, movies, etc; native history and art; local products and more. Worth a visit! [---]

An Absolute must see for all US and North American citizens. This center is an expertly constructed authentic small concise museum you can walk through in 30 min or take a couple hours reading detailed amazingly important historical descriptions of Lewis and Clarks expedition with all the rich authentic Indian history of the important Discovery and pre-homesteading period. The museum cost approximately $10 per adult or less and includes the full moderated tour of the amazing Fort Mandan located just a couple miles up the Missouri River shore line. Free parking and restroom at both sites with souvenir shops and snack food and beverages. Please do not miss this opportunity while all this detail and support is being supported by the State.

Charles L

Very nice museum, well presented with good artifacts and interactive displays, I left a little bit smarter about history and enjoyed the learning process

Tammie Masters

Really enjoyed it, very informative. I, also, enjoyed walking to the river on the Lewis and Clark Legacy Trail. The information that I found said the trail was 2.2 miles, that's 1 way, end to end; I went a bit past the riverboat and back and went 3.5 miles. It's a very nice, easy walk with some elevation; there's, also, a Frisbee Golf course. The entire visitor center was well worth the stop. Make sure you go to the Mandan Fort, also.

Kayla Peplinski

Kevin Bower

The center overlooks the Missouri if you go out to the back porch. The gorgeous view added to the center's very nice collection of items pertinent to Lewis and Clark's expedition.

Laura Wilson

Pretty amazing. Learned about people on the expedition that I hadn't heard of or didn't remember. Gift shop sold books that were the complete journals of Lewis and Clark. I would go visit again.

Terra Nelson

Rangers are very knowledgeable and the tour is very interactive for field trips.

Larry Abdallah

History, that is often ignored ... MUSH ... Yo the loss of this generation

Douglas Doerr

As we are riding the Lewis and Clark Trail, this was a "must see side trip." It provides great incite to Discovery and also to agriculture in the great state of North Dakota. The admission cost includes a tour of Ft Mandan, about two miles away.

Emmanuel Jackson

Its just part if our American culture
