National Historic Trails Center
The National Historical Trails Interpretive Center is a must-see destination while visiting Casper. Not only does it have historical information relevant to Wyoming but has a fantastic view of Casper. During your visit, you will be able to explore exhibits related to names that are truly legendary in Western history, and on the Oregon, California, Mormon and Pony Express Trails. Through these exhibits, we capture the real-life drama that the half-million pioneers experienced as they followed these trails between 1841 and 1868.
The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center is a nonprofit organization and all exhibits are owned, maintained and upgraded by the foundation.
