Lewis And Clark Interpretive Center

Lewis And Clark Interpretive Center

The displays include Native American artifacts, a buffalo robe visitors will be able to try on, as well as a "cradle-board" much like the one Sacagawea may have used to carry her baby. An authentic wood canoe carved from the trunk of a large cottonwood tree demonstrates the winter preparations the Expedition made while at Fort Mandan. The latest addition to the Interpretive Center - the Fort Clark Exhibit in the Sheldon Gallery - presents the history of the mighty steamboats, frontier trade and Native American culture that saturated this region.

We hope you enjoy our work.
