Very well kept station. Many interesting displays. Docents lead tours. Many interesting 'make work' project displays from depression era.

Great little museum. Price is $10 cash. You'll see a 10 minute video and receive a tour on the barn and artifacts throughout. Take about 1 hour and is in the heart of downtown.

For fans of the West this is well worth the stop. The Pony Express was a great episode of the Old West. Some very nice exhibits here and it is well worth a visit. Staff very helpful and friendly.

Nice museum with interesting history on the pony express. Self guided tour includes some additional history about the surroundings. Good educational experience!
