St. Charles played an important role in the journey of Lewis and Clark, so naturally, there are historical sites to visit in their honor, including the Boat House, Museum and Nature Center. This educational facility has exhibits on the Lewis and Clark Expedition and the Missouri River
ecosystem. Something for all ages. The museum houses full-size replicas of the keelboat and pirogues used by Lewis and Clark. There is a bookstore and gift shop. School field trips and bus tours are welcome.
