Visit the Historic Trails Center

You may remember your history books’ account of the harsh conditions, extreme weather and deadly terrain emigrants faced to get to the “Promised Land” over the Oregon, Mormon and California Trails. But to truly experience what life was like for the pioneers, visit the National Historic Trails Interpretative Center. 


Seven galleries relate stories of life on the trail with an award-winning audio-visual presentation and lifelike displays that help visitors understand the hardships and tenacious spirit of America’s western settlers. Kids and adults alike will leave the museum with a newfound appreciation for the western frontier.


In addition to an incredible educational opportunity, the Historic Trails Center facility is an architectural must-see. Additionally, your visit will provide you with one of the best views of Casper anywhere in the city.
