    Great little portrait museum, there's a tiny sign with a number you can call to get detailed historical info on the building just as you walk up the stairs on the right.

    All of the paintings are originals, including possibly the only contemporary portraits of Meriwether Lewis & William Clark.

    After checking out the 200 or so rare historic portraits, take a few steps away to the SignersGarden, with geometrically patterned raised flower beds, walking paths, a pergola and a fruit orchard.

    There are free Park Service ranger talks here daily. They are not well advertised, but are well worth the time.
