We stopped here in mid-March and the museum was closed. Hours are posted as 3 April - 24 October, 7 days per week. We had beautiful weather and the park is a great stop for kids to run off some energy. Bathrooms in the park were also closed for the season. The building is worth a look-see if you need a stop.

We had a fun time getting out and stretching our legs at this little stop. The lady was very informative and she was able to answer all of our questions. There is also a park for kids to run around and restroom.

Definitely stop here! We have stopped here twice on cross country trips! There is a pony metal cut out and a historic rock plus an original cabin that was part of the pony express. Come when it is open to see the artifacts inside (free) and buy some fun or educational pony express souvenirs. The park has nice green space, bathrooms, picnic tables under a pavilion and a playground too.

Very cool place to visit. Very informative guide was willing and eager to share all you wanted to learn. She even suggested a few other, not so distant, places to stop.
