Missouri River Breaks Interpretive Center

Missouri Breaks Interpretive Center 

The interpretive center celebrates its 5th anniversary this year with several special events. 

Join the BLM’s Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument Interpretive Center this summer as we commemorate our 5th year! We will host a number of special events and exhibits throughout the summer.

Jack Gladstone joins us during Fort Benton’s Summer Celebration on Saturday, June 25th, entertaining everyone with his musical tales about local history and Native American stories. 

Learn about the Nez Perce National Historic Trail with Jim Evans, Executive Director of the Nez Perce Trail Foundation on Sunday, June 26th. 

View the BLM’s National Landscape Conservation System through the lens of photographers in a special summer-long exhibit featuring many unique places in Montana and throughout the West. 

Discover the little-known spiny softshell turtle, said to resemble a pancake with a pigs’ snout! Learn about the research being done on this reptile through presentations by Brian Tornebene – who will provide an evening program for adults and families as well as a special Kids Day activity during the day, both on August 13th

All of these activities and more will be posted on the Missouri Breaks Interpretive Center web site at: http://www.blm.gov/mt/st/en/fo/lewistown_field_office/umrbnm/interpcenter.html
