Free Admission February 14-28

Posted on 2/14/2014

The Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center in Washburn is offering free admission through the month of February in honor of all American presidents, especially Thomas Jefferson, whose influence is seen in the Interpretive Center's new galleries.

"We're offering free admission in honor of our favorite president, Thomas Jefferson," said Lewis & Clark Fort Mandan Foundation President David Borlaug. "Jefferson's birthday isn't until April, but we're celebrating early with free admission."

The Interpretive Center galleries use a Jeffersonian "Age of Enlightenment" them to present visitors with first-rate, interactive exhibits detailing the Corps of Discovery's experience during their journey. The galleries also feature many era-appropriate artifacts that are over 200 years old.

The Foundation also produces the weekly "Thomas Jefferson Hour" with Clay Jenkinson, broadcast throughout the United States on public radio stations and available as a podcast via Apple iTunes and at, free of charge.

"While this has been a cold winter, we're keeping it nice and warm at the Interpretive Center, and our new galleries and expansion invite people to visit."

For more information, call 877-462-8535. The Interpretive Center is open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.
