  • Very interesting. The more I learn about Lewis and Clark I wonder how they did it. Interesting how high the building was because of the floods from the river. The museum upstairs was full of things that adults and children like to do and view. Do sit and enjoy the film that is a must. One could easily spend two or three hours here sure you don't miss the surrounding park and statues for a photo opportunity
  • Step into history for $5/adult, $2/child, and get a closer look at the life, times, and tools surrounding the historic journey of Lewis and Clark from their start along the Missouri River. Complete with a gift shop containing replica tools, jewelry, and bags, and relevant books, the boathouse offers a glimpse into a revolutionary past and the adventure that shaped the nation. Would definitely recommend to any history buffs, teachers, or parents looking to broaden their loved one's understanding of America's history and the world as it once was.
