  • Lewis and Clark Tours 

    Part of what makes Lewis and Clark so unique is the beauty of its campuses. From our sculptures and gardens to our historic buildings and our newer, state of the art facilities, we invite the community and the general public to visit us and see all that we have to offer. 

    Sculpture and Garden Tours

    Stretch your legs and your mind — take an entertaining guided walking tour of the stunning Godfrey campus. 

    Learn about the history of Lewis and Clark and the former Monticello Women's Seminary, and discover how Lewis and Clark is currently working to preserve the beauty of the original limestone buildings and copper patina accents. Explore the lily pond, fountains, and gardens designed to inspire students and be environmentally friendly. Listen to the stories behind the monumental bronze sculptures by world-renowned artist Richard Hunt in Crossroads Plaza, Ruth Duckworth's "Survivor," Missouri Botanical Garden's Signature Gardens, Fountain Court, River of Colors Garden, "Sacagawea" by Glenna Goodacre, and many more fascinating features of the 215-acre campus.

    Free guided group tours are available from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please email for availability.
