“Stamp of Approval”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

This interactive museum will keep the interest of both younger and older visitors. Several audio and hands on displays bring the history of the Pony Express Museum back to life. A children's area is located within the museum that allows younger visitors to dress up and act out the days of the Pony Express. A replica of a one room schoolhouse is located next to the museum. This museum hosts a Pumpkinfest weekend each October.

“A true gem! Don't miss this!”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

Step back in time and and relive the adventure of the Pony Express! You are actually standing in the Pony Express barn and kids will love the steam engine in the park across the street too. There is a great video to start your tour, then you step into the blacksmiths area and see a horse being shod (life size statues). Then you head out to a moment in time captured by lifesize statues of the horse and rider who began the Pony Express. This is a very impressive museum filled with historical items and great information! Don't miss this museum!

“Loved it!”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

These pioneers should have greater recognition and the museum should be on everyone's itinerary if they are in Saint Joseph or close by. Fascinating incite in to this recent history.

This museum has some interesting pony express stuff but up the street for the same price is a much better museum.

“Don't miss this place!”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

The museum and 15 minute documentary about the creation of the Pony Express was well worth the visit. And they have a great gift shop as well!
