• Pony Express Museum - St. Joseph, Missouri

      Roadtrip Attraction
      The Pony Express route ran from St. Joseph, Missouri to Sacramento, California. It ran for only 19 months in 1860-61, but achieved a place in western history and folklore that survives to this day. Two other area attractions are within walking distance and are tied in with the Pony Express: The Patee House and the Jesse James Home.

      If you go:
      Plan a full morning or afternoon to see all three sights. Check dates and hours, as these are seasonal attractions.
