Both my 7 and 14 year old found this to be very interesting. It was interactive and also very educational. Inspired by daughter to learn more about Sacawagea and my son to look more into Lewis and Clark. Great time for all types.

Rangers and volunteers were a wealth of information. Path from visitor's center to the fort is well maintained and a short walk through beautiful trees.

Well laid out informative museum then go down the trail to the reconstructed fort. Interact with interpreters in period costumes and props. Especially nice place for a St. Louis resident but good for anyone interested in US history.

Dogs are allowed on all outside areas and trails. They are not allowed in the museum portion. The fort itself is so small that you can stand in the doorway and peek in.
