Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center
Established in 2002 by Missouri River Historic Development, Inc., the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center features a museum and an addition, the Encounter Center, built in 2007. The Lewis and Clark Expedition, also known as the Corps of Discovery, arrived in the Sioux City area July 1804 and departed in early September. The museum's exhibits focus on this period and the Native Americans the expedition encountered here. Many of the exhibits are interactive and there are some animatronic mannequins. Also on display are reproductions of military equipment and two dozen games, and buffalo robes. The Encounter Center houses galleries for exhibitions, an activity room, and a theater.
