“Great piece of history”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

This was one of the places we stopped at in St. Joe. It is truly informative as to how the pony express worked back them. The route they had to take was amazing. We had my brother and sister in-law in tow that day. They were visiting us from Maine. They had a great time. St Joe is an hour away from our house and is worth the trip up there. they have some really neat historical sites.

It was to go back to the past and learn about the Pony Express Riders and St Joseph History. I would go again!

“Well done”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

They have done a nice job putting together a interesting piece of history on a limited budget. We really enjoyed the museum and all they put together. The museum is located in a historical part of St Joe, so it is well worth your time to go for the whole day. If you can, stay the night and do a 2 day sight seeing "adventure".

“A trip to the past”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

This museum is small but really well done. You experience the struggles of the early pioneer as he travelled westward. Not only do you get to see: You get to touch and smell. There is also a bit of archeology. The admission price is small. Also, the museum is centered in the heart of lots of historical sites.
