  • Enjoyed our visit and learned more about the Pony Express. They've done a good job of telling the story of the Pony Express  more »
  • Very interesting tour. Very educational and enjoyed everything about it. That day they were giving horse and carriage rides which was very nice. Very relaxing and it topped the day off.  more »

  • Wow! Lots of info! Really cool. My kids loved it. They got to pump water from the original well and play with toys that were popular in the pony express days. Pretty cheap for 6 of us too!
  • There's really only 2 Pony Express Museums, and this one is most easily accessible for it's location. The other is in KS. Spend an hour here and learn the short-lived importance of this delivery service in American history. ¬©TIFA 2003
