New Exhibits
Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center
The newly-remodeled Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center is a world-class museum in the heart of North Dakota. Here, you'll find state-of-the-art interactive exhibits about the Lewis & Clark Expedition, the story of Fort Clark and the early fur trade, and "Our First Farmers" to the present. Whether it's your first visit or your tenth, there is so much more to explore!



Blacksmith
Fort Mandan
Take a step back in time when you visit the reconstructed Fort Mandan, the winter home of the Lewis & Clark Expedition from 1804-1805. The fully-furnished quarters bring to life what it was like for the brave men in the Corps of Discovery during that North Dakota winter over 200 years ago.




The Guns of Lewis & Clark
Interpretive Programs
Experience history up close in one of our many daily interpretive programs. Light a fire at the fort with a flint striker, watch an 1803 rifle in action, identify the same plants as Meriwether Lewis while you walk along the trail, hold artifacts from the Mandan village in your hand, test your knowledge of Sacagawea myths and truths, sample age-old Hidatsa recipes, or try on an Expedition uniform. No two visits to the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center are the same.
