Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center & Fort Mandan

Join the Discovery! The Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center, located 38 miles north of Bismarck on US Hwy 83, tells the story of the Corps of Discovery’s expedition across the continent. Overlooking the Missouri River, the Interpretive Center’s all-new galleries exhibit world-famous art collections – including Karl Bodmer and George Catlin – and Lewis & Clark-era artifacts, as well as exhibits on North Dakota agriculture. Two miles west of the Interpretive Center you can take a step back in time by visiting the reconstructed Fort Mandan, the winter home of the Lewis & Clark Expedition from 1804-05. The fully-furnished quarters bring to life what it was like for the brave men of the Expedition during that North Dakota winter over 200 years ago. The Museum Store and interpretive facilities are open daily. Admission is $8 for adults, $5 for students, and free to members. Plan your visit by going to for more information.
