“catch the Oregon Trail”

Begin to follow the trail of Lewis & Clark as they make their way to the Pacific Ocean in search of mammoth bones for Thomas Jefferson. The Sioux City Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center showcases permanent exhibits about the Corps of Discovery's time in the present-day Sioux City area, from late July to early September 1804. The death and burial of Sergeant Charles Floyd on Aug. 20, 1804, is at the center of the story. Floyd was the first U.S. soldier to die west of the Mississippi River. The expedition as a military operation comes to life in exhibits that use interactive devices, including animatronic mannequins, computers, flip books, stamping stations, text-and-graphic panels, lift-and-drop panels, handpainted murals, a brass-rubbing station, and reproductions of military equipment. The Traditional Native Games exhibit displays more than two dozen reproductions of games artifacts housed at the Buechel Lakota Memorial Museum at St. Francis Mission on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. The Center's Buffalo Robe exhibit highlights the role of the buffalo to Native peoples.
