    Great little museum, lots of things to look at, a nice little gift shop. The staff was knowledgeable and kind. It is a small display, but well put together, the large boats were especially interesting to me, unfortunately they were behind gates at the time of our visit. Highly recommend.

    I recently had the privilege to attend a conference at this beautful place. This is definitely a hidden gem. The views are spectacular and the museum is incredible right next to the Missouri river. This was my first time visiting St. Charles. Its been one of the most beautiful places I've been to. Bob and his team were extremely friendly. I highly recommend visiting.

    If you were like me, I am sure you drove past the boathouse in Historic St. Charles a hundred times. On the hundred and first time we stopped to check it out. When you walk up to the boathouse there are native wildflowers grown with information of the species. Then you encounter an old restored boat used to travel on Missouri river by Lewis and Clark, and it is in use to this day. It is a keelboat, and it is crazy. I am sure a lot of dedication and hard work goes into maintaining it. The staff were all super nice and out-of-there way accommodating! I noticed the museum and it was only a few dollars to tour. Once I entered, it was absolutely a hidden inexpensive gem! There are artifacts from the period, walls chocked full of information. Small replicas of the villages. There are many dioramas depicting scenes of the time. In addition, a lot of the native wildlife here in Missouri. The facility is very clean and has a beautiful view of the river through there large picture windows. A nice building here in our backyard of St. Charles County. So, the next time you are down there, take a few minutes and check this out. Great place to take the young ones!

    Visiting this boat house was quite amazing experience. We really enjoyed and get really good information about boat and history. There is $5 fees for each. Extremely sweet staff with. Nice little gift shop. The actual museum was much smaller than expected, but the longboat was fascinating. Right on the Missouri river, the place gives you a perspective on what the travelers went through. Plus you can earn the NPS Lewis and Clark Junior Ranger Badge.

    This is a must for history buffs interested in the Corp of Discovery. While compact, it is full of artifacts, exhibits and information bring the Lewis & Clark expedition to life and making it real and relevant for today. The staff was friendly and professional. The gift shop is particularly well done. Great assortment of merchandise - educational and souvenirs - and really well stocked and merchandised. A hidden gem for sure!
