The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center is operated by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and is a public-private partnership between the BLM, the National Historic Trails Center Foundation, and the City of Casper, Wyoming. It tells the stories of American Indians, early explorers, and the Oregon, Mormon, California, and Pony Express trails.
Interactive exhibits, including simulated covered wagon and stagecoach rides, life-size displays, and interpretive panels are found throughout the Center's seven galleries. Living history demonstrations, interpretive programs, multimedia presentations and special events are also offered. An orientation desk provides information and brochures about the national historic trails throughout Wyoming. In addition, the Center's 500 acres of land contain more than four miles of interpretive trails, ruts carved by emigrant wagons, and magnificent vistas. Allow two to three hours for your visit.
