Family Day 2015

You can share the experience of the Pony Express legend with many educational, hands-on exhibits and activities during the upcoming Family Day.

Family Day
February 16, 2015
10:00 am – Noon and 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Free Admission to Museum/Pony School
Pony Express National Museum, 914 Penn, St. Joseph

Whatever your age, you are sure to be captivated by the Pony Express stories and a day
in the museum guided by local interpreters. Inspired by many requests from children visiting the museum, Family Day gives kids a chance to step back into the 1860’s job of a Pony Express Rider. We will have several crafts/activities to do in the community room and a good imagination will help at each location.

Admission to the Museum and the Pony School is free, with sponsorship by Education Programming Scholarship Fund. We encourage families to take a tour through the Museum and Pony School. Special guided tours and presentations at the Pony School every half hour during Family Day bring the legend of the Pony Express and its riders to life.

Can’t attend Family Day? Stop by with your family and guests for a step back in time at one of the nation’s premier museums. Winter Hours: The Museum is open daily from 9am – 4pm Monday-Saturday (Winter Hours) and 11am – 4pm on Sunday. Admission rates are $6 for adults, $5 seniors, and $3 (for children over 6), and 6 and under are free. For further information about programs and events please call (816) 279-5059.

Did you know that with your family membership, entrance is free throughout the year – as well as many other benefits you’ll enjoy as you keep the stories, history and spirit of the Pony Express alive.
