Lewis and Clark Fort Mandan Foundation

The Lewis & Clark Fort Mandan Foundation was the first chapter in our organization’s history. For over 20 years the Foundation operated the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center & Fort Mandan in Washburn, ND, which are now part of the North Dakota State parks system. In 2016, the Foundation opened The Capital Gallery in downtown Bismarck, and now operates under that name. The Capital Gallery is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We are a membership supported organization, and invite you to join The Capital Gallery Society. For more information, email info@thecapitalgallery.com. Our mission is simple. Celebrating history, art, and culture!


Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center

We have a newly-remodeled Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center with state-of-the-art interactive exhibits and a new collection of artifacts, a new exhibit honoring North Dakota's family farms, and much more. We also welcome you to step back in time and visit the reconstructed Fort Mandan.

The Capital Gallery

Art has always been a passion of our Foundation since our inception in 1995. In 2016, we began our venture of operating a fine art gallery in Downtown Bismarck. In the summer of 2019, we opened our first branch gallery in historic Medora.

Our mission is simple. Celebrating history, art, and culture!
