Permanent exhibits at the Missouri-Yellowstone Confluence Interpretive Center explore the geography and geology of the area, its prehistoric life, and the impact of people arriving by Trails, Tracks, Rivers and Roads, which is also the name of the exhibits area. Featured in the 2,000-square-foot permanent gallery will be the Lewis and Clark journey, the fur trade era, Fort Buford, and the development of the modern-day irrigation and energy industries. There are more than 200 artifacts in the permanent gallery, including a frontier army transport wagon, a steamboat pilot's navigating wheel, and a 1904 Model A Cadillac.
