  • 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...  more »

  • my mom lives in Casper, and when we were coming to visit from out of state. she said she wanted to bring us here. We absolutely loved this place!! And if you're a history buff like me, you definitely will to!! It's basically a museum that teaches you about what the settlers went through. While travelling, if I remember correctly, mostly from St Louis to California. Which was the reason that the city of Casper was founded. They have many interesting and entertaining exhibits, showing you not only the difficulties that they went through each day. but also the hostel attitudes that many native Americans had towards them.. I really liked how they showed things from both the settlers and the native Americans points of view! it's definitely a great place to learn about the history of the area and the trails for both adults and kids alike!
  • I'd give more stars if I could! We happened upon this place, needing a rest on our drive. So well done! And no admission charge. Life-like exhibits, helpful staff, a great gift shop... Don't skip this place!
