My wife and I both thought the interpretative center was worth the time to stop and see. The short movie and the walk through displays were interesting and gave the upper reach trek of the L&C group pretty well.

Worth stopping in if you are here. The boats they cut from trees were large and they have one on display. Some displays could use an update like the one that shows their journey - I thought the routes should light up.
