Missouri-Yellowstone Confluence

The Missouri-Yellowstone Confluence Interpretive Center (MYCIC) held its grand opening in August 2003. The $2.2 million center tells the history and prehistory of the area near the confluence of the Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers and includes a 2,000-square-foot permanent exhibit, Trails, Tracks, Rivers, and Roads. The 8,600-square-foot facility was built with local, state, and federal funding. It attracted more than 24,000 visitors from all 50 states and 20 countries its first year.
