Overview Service & Activities
About The Missouri Breaks Interpretive Center keeps stories alive! Our center highlights the natural and cultural history of the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument and the Wild and Scenic Upper Missouri River. The lobby of the interpretive center provides boating information for those floating the river. The classroom provides viewing of our 20 minute film White Cliffs, Wild River and also showcases a 3-D scale model of the entire 149-mile river corridor. The interpretive hall provides interactive and touchable displays for the child in all of us. Re-live steam boating history by stepping inside a replica pilot house. View Chief Josephs' surrender rifle, relinquished after a 1,170 mile journey by members of the Nez Perce tribe who raced for freedom with the U.S. Army in pursuit. Stand next to a life-size replica Murphy Freight Wagon, used to take shipments arriving on steamboats at Fort Benton's levee to points as far as Walla Walla Washington, Bannack Montana and Fort Whoop-up in Canada. View species native to the Monument including paddlefish and sturgeon which have been plying these waters since the age of dinosaurs. Test your bird-call IQ with our interactive bird call station. Learn first-hand about other native upland species and native plants of the area. All these stories are waiting to be heard at the Missouri Breaks Interpretive Center, in Fort Benton, Montana.
