Fort Mandan
Fort Mandan

Recreated in the riparian forest along the Missouri River, Fort Mandan provides visitors with a virtual link to the past. Step through the gates and experience the sights, sounds and smells of a time long past. The rooms, furnished with historically accurate reproductions, recreate the living conditions of the Expedition's "Fort Mandan Experience." See Meriwether Lewis' field desk, William Clark's map-making tools, bunks the men slept in, equipment they carried in the field, clothes they wore, and the blacksmith's forge.

On-site interpreters provide programs and year-round tours of Lewis & Clark's 1804-1805 wintering post.
