Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument Interpretive Center

The Interpretive Center highlights the natural and cultural history of the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument. Boating information for those floating the Wild and Scenic Upper Missouri River is available, as well as hand-on exhibits about the land, the wildlife, and the culture of the area.

View the rifle the exhausted and disheartened Nez Perce leader Chief Joseph surrendered at the Bears Paw Battlefield of Montana. Step inside a replica steamboat pilot house with artifacts from the steamboat the Far West. View a life size version of a Murphy freight wagon that hauled supplies, brought upriver on steamboats, to the far flung reaches of Montana and beyond. Come learn about the pallid sturgeon and paddlefish, which have been in the Missouri River since the age of the dinosaurs.
