A FABULOUS VISIT-AGAIN IN 2021
Apr 2021
Told a friend of mine that she had to see this Museum even though I had been there a couple of years ago. It is a wonderful experience and now that we all stayed home for a year, due to Covid, it is great to get out now that we are vaccinated. Do not miss "Crossing a River in a Covered Wagon exhibit" This is just a terrific and exciting Museum even a second time. There is so much to read and enjoy! They are open on their Winter Hours until Memorial Weekend 9-4:30PM.

Must stop for elementary age kids
Mar 2021 • Family
Brought our 5 children (6yr-12yr) for a visit March 2021. Elementary schools in WY study the Oregon trail in 4th grade so especially interesting for that age group. Would highly recommend. Free. Volunteer helpful and knowledgeable. Should be a first stop if planning to visit other trail sites in area.

Don't miss this if you are in or near Casper - it is a must see!!
Nov 2020
If you have the time and are interested in history, do not miss this exhibit. There were no other visitors present during our visit, so we had the place to ourselves (and some contractors). This is a really well presented, concise story of the opening of the West. What a tale and so complete. What makes it even more interesting is that most of the trails passed just below the center. There were a couple of "rides" that, although they didn't move forward, there was certainly the sense that you were in one of the wagons traveling along the trail, fording the river, etc. Really well done and the staff were so nice!

Most excellent! Don’t miss out!
Oct 2020
This was a very worthwhile experience. Super clean newer building. Full of rich, interesting history about the early pioneers including the pony express. Staff were extremely knowledgeable especially a local gentleman who kindly offered us many extra tidbits and offered us a wagon ride across a virtual river! What a great time we had.

Must do historical site to understand the westward expansion
Sep 2020
This is a must do if you are passing through Casper. The museum tells the story of the four major western movements that passed through Casper across the Platte heading west in the 19th century. Start your visit with the movie to set the story for you. The exhibits are notable inn that they are easy to read and practice word economy. No need to stand 10 minutes in front of each exhibit to read. It is all very well done.

Learn about the trails
Aug 2020 • Couples
This free museum is the best place to get an overall history lesson about the Westward movement of people on the Oregon, Mormon and California trails. These trails went through Wyoming. Watch the 18 min film first then explore the museum. While not a huge museum it is very well organized and has many great interactive features. We were very impressed. The gift shop has great books. The staff were very friendly. Definitely a must see if you are interested in the trails.

Totally impressed
Jul 2020
We just moved back from Europe & felt a sense of solidarity with the pioneers represented in this museum. Such a well done hands-on museum for children & adults alike. And it was free! Impressive.

A few things were closed for covid but overall this was a great stop on our journey!
