  • We had made our way up to Independence via Richmond and Lexington to see all these historic sites only to have it closed due to Covid. Perhaps another time since it certainly looks very interesting  more »
  • Residents and tourists need to check out the regional history here about the Santa Fe, California and Oregon trails. Our school group was even able to tie in a wagon ride.  more »

  • Wonderful place! My children and I loved it and will go back. We rode the carriage from the Square to the museum and loved every second! Independence has a rich history and there is so much to learn.
  • We spent 2 1/2 hours enjoying the museum . I really liked reading all the primary source quotes and accounts of those who traveled the trails and their experiences. If you're near Independence, MO it's worth a visit.
