Sioux City Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center

This is a private, non-profit cultural complex on the Missouri Riverfront.
The beautiful center opened in 2002 in time to commemorate the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial in 2004. It expanded even further in 2007 to include an “Encounter Center”.
The original wing is dedicated to Lewis and Clark and has some very unique displays that I thoroughly enjoyed. One is an animated Seaman barking at a prairie dog. The other is a very dramatic burial ceremony for Sgt. Floyd which includes Lewis and Clark paying tribute to their friend and fellow soldier.
To think that this facility is privately funded and non-profit is almost unbelievable. Very well done and my thanks to the Missouri River Historical Development, Inc.
