"Pony Express Museum is my..." Saint Joseph Things to Do Tip by brdwtchr

Saint Joseph Things to Do: 55 reviews and 76 photos


Pony Express Museum is my favorite place to go in St. Joseph. The museum is housed in a building that at one time was a stable for the horses of the pony express. For those who are unfamiliar with US history, at one time there were gold miners and people in California and Oregon while the Eastern part of my country was also populated. The interior of my country, places like Kansas, were almost completely unpopulated. The pony express riders carried pouches of mail on horse back long distances to California from St. Joseph. Although it was very dangerous work most of the express riders were young boys. Young boys did not weigh as much so they would not tire the horses. They were brave young men.
There is a good place inside the museum to have your photo taken with an express rider about to open the stable doors and start his trek. There is an actual leather express saddle you can sit on. Numerous displays about the history of the express riders.
