Independence was the major "jumping-off" point for the American West. This is an interpretive museum, library and archive, devoted to the western trails.

This is the only museum in the nation certified by the National Park Service as an interpretive site for five national historic trails: Lewis and Clark Trail; Santa Fe Trail; Oregon Trail; California Trail; and Mormon Trails.

The facility includes: an award-winning film; exhibits highlighting the trails; covered wagons; trail diaries; artifacts; and a research library. Covered wagon rides available seasonally. Swales (grassed over wagon ruts) from the trails-era can be seen from a walking trail nearby.

Admission: $6; age 62+, $5; ages 6-17, $3; younger than 6, free.
