“standing tribute to the legend & legacy of the Pony Express”

"On April 3, 1860, a lone rider left on horseback from the gates of one of the nation’s most historic landmarks, the Pikes Peak Stables in St. Joseph, Missouri. Carrying saddlebags filled with our nations hopes and dreams, the riders traveled 2000 miles west to Sacramento, California. These brave young souls raced against nature's cruel elements and rugged terrain in an attempt to unite a country separated by distance. Today the stables continue to stand as a tribute to the legend and legacy of the Pony Express and its enduring era. Come and experience the many exciting, educational, state-of-the-art exhibits conveying the need, creation, operation and termination of the Pony Express. Whatever your age, you’re sure to be captivated by the stories and images of an era long passed."

We had a great time at the Pony Express Museum. There were lots of hands on displays for the kids and a game that they played to hunt for facts as we toured the museum

I was hesitant to stop at another small town museum. This place was really exceptional though! The way they had things displayed made them seem so vital. And the collections themselves were very impressive as was the building itself, a very high class hotel in its day and actual home office for the Pony Express. Wow!
