  • Wonderful place! My children and I loved it and will go back. We rode the carriage from the Square to the museum and loved every second! Independence has a rich history and there is so much to learn.
  • We spent 2 1/2 hours enjoying the museum . I really liked reading all the primary source quotes and accounts of those who traveled the trails and their experiences. If you're near Independence, MO it's worth a visit.
