This is a nice monument to anyone connected to the Pony Express. Amazing that a business that operated for about 18 months and lost money is so etched in the American consciousness. Well, I visit remains of Pony Express stations and the route itself whenever...More

Nice monument & pit-stop off I80 at Cabellas by the Flags. Kind of surreal to stretch legs, email & text, realizing back in the day they could never have imagined!

Worth stopping and taking a look at this monument. You will be here about 30 minutes to take a good look at everything. Convenient to the hotels in Sidney and right in front of the Cabela's. Worth a quick stop for a photo opp.

This is located right in front of Cabella's. The monument is very life-like and impressive. We enjoyed looking at all that was there and reading about the history of the pony express. It is definitely worth a visit!

We were passing through the area and needed a chance to get out and stretch. The monument itself is kind of underwhelming... it's very well kept but not much to it. If you walk around the small pond watch out for geese poo! Some may...More

If you need a stop during a long drive this works. It is mostly just a statue with a few signs in a sporting goods parking lot. A nice memorial, but not too informative. Plan on five minutes.

Really enjoyed the Pony Express Monument. It was easy to access and very well taken care of. The statue had so much detail and the signs around it were very informative. It's basically located in the Cabelas parking lot so plenty of parking to access...More
