“To Understand the Pony Express”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

The tale of the Pony Express is linked to St. Joseph MO and is part of our American Heritage. This museum tells the story of the iconic service between St. Joseph and Sacramento. It is not a great museum but does give you the history and the excitement of the Pony Express

“Small, but thorough.”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

They had all sorts of information about the short-lived pony express. Considering it only lasted 19 months, it left a huge mark on American history.

“Well worth the trip”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

For a semi-small city, this is a unique museum. Even has smell-enhanced displays. An intimate look into the early history of this town.

“Visit an actual pony express stable”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Visit one of the actual pony express stables now a museum. Learn all about the start and finish of the pony express along with local history of the area surrounding the Missouri river at St. Joseph.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

This is well done, ok, but a little disappointing. There were more artifacts at the Patee House and this was very small, not cheap and not really a good tour. the historic aspects really weren't there. Work in progress, it seems
