National Frontier Trails Museum Website »
The National Frontier Trails Museum recreates the story of daring pioneers, explorers, fortune seekers, and others who led the expansion of the United States across the continent, as well as the contact, and sometimes conflict with American Indians and competitors from other nations. The National Frontier Trails Museum is the only museum, library and archives in the nation devoted to the fascinating stories of the Lewis & Clark, Santa Fe, Oregon, California, and Mormon Pioneers Historic Trails.
Our exhibits include, quotes from journals and diaries, original illustrations and artifacts, explorations of Lewis & Clark and mountain men, and the unique story of Mormons looking for religious freedom. "Pack the Wagon" hands on exhibit for kids and California Gold Rush "spin" to see their fortune or misfortune in the 1849 gold fields.
