  • This was supposed to be a quick stop on our trip to Yellowstone. It truly is a hidden gem. First this place is beautiful. Second, the history is addictive. Third, the people working there were great. ...  more »

  • Great history and an honor to visit a piece of sacred ground that helped so many travelers back in the day. Kim in the gift shop (replica of Bridgers Fort) was very kind and helpful.
  • Must see!!!! Get off the interstate and stroll the grounds and the many historic buildings.
  • Traveling in RV, just pulled off to fix breakfast and stayed 2.5 hour n great place if you need a break from I-80
  • Exceptional history here! Everything is well preserved, very fun and educational. Don't miss- it's out of the way but well worth the trip!
  • Maybe worth stopping by if you're passing through, but I wouldn't make the trip just for the museum, and they close pretty early. By the way, why no mention at the museum of how Bridger withheld letters that may have stopped the Donner party from taking the Hastings Cutoff and leading to the death of half the group?
