Museum of Westward Expansion Exhibits
The exhibits at the Museum of Westward Expansion bring history to life. Learn about Lewis and Clark, and the many explorers that followed. With a life-size tipi and covered wagon on display, see firsthand how the pioneers and the American Indians lived. Other exhibits demonstrate the way-of-life of farmers, buffalo hunters, miners and others whose lives played out during the time of the great westward expansion.
