The park has been upgraded from when I was there years ago. There is a lot of information and hands on things to do in the building. Outside the trails are beautiful. I really enjoyed visiting the park.

My experience was great! Loved the indoors & especially the outdoor trails. The only thing that could be better was the floor & odor while watching the movie.

Excellent National Park Monument and Visitors Center. Much information about this pioneering man. Paved trail if you wish to tour the grounds. Video is a must-see

I had several relatives in Carthage and have visited here many times since shortly after it was opened. It has never failed to inspire me. Well worth a short detour off of the beaten path.

Wonderful educational experience at Missouri's National Monument. Loads of interactive exhibits, walking trails, educational programs, and a well-informed staff make this a must for fans of America's parks and historic sites
