Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Interpretive Center

Retrace the more than 200 year old journey of Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark and the Corps of Discovery. Over 4,000 miles of rough, rugged terrain challenged the Corps’ 30 men, 1 woman, and 1 baby. Walk through time in the 6,000 square foot exhibit space starting in St. Louis, Missouri, peaking along the Pacific coast, and returning to St. Louis. Travel through the landscape of the expedition, and observe the plants, animals, and native peoples much as the Corps of Discovery did. Interactive displays are complimented by a variety of educational films, live interpretive programs, and historic demonstrations on a daily basis.

During the school year, teachers can schedule a Lewis and Clark or Indian Education field trip which includes a classroom session, tour of the exhibit hall, and educational film. Please contact the Interpretive Center for more information on school group visits.

Bringing a tour group? Make arrangements in advance and your group of 20 or more may be eligible for a discounted group rate. Please contact the Interpretive Center for more information.
