We found several information signs outside the museum.
The museum is operated by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and there is no entrance fee. Displays were focused on westward expansion and the trails that passed through the area.
The museum has a lot of interactive exhibits. Some were just pull handles and audio. The biggest was a group of dioramas showing life size wagons, animals, and people traveling the trails that passed through the area. The lights would shine on each one at a time and sound effects and spoken audio would play that indicated what was being displayed.
One display was very interactive. It was a wagon that "travels" across a river.
Another was a stagecoach ride headed west.
We had a great visit to the museum and enjoyed the interactive nature of the exhibits.
Time for dinner. I had the bison meatloaf and Shawna had the blackened catfish.

All the recent uploads are wonderful. The scenery, the history told on the markers and signs. The old buildings and interiors are great.
