National Historic Trails Interpretive Center

The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) developed under the cooperative eye of three primary partners - The Bureau of Land Management, the National Historic Trails Center Foundation, and the City of Casper.

There are seven galleries, a multi media presentation on Oregon Trail-Rendezvous Country, California (Glendo State Park), Mormon (Fort Laramie National Historic Site), Pony Express trails (Sweetwater County) and Native American history. A congressional bill was passed and signed by President Bill Clinton to fund construction and operation of this $10 Million project. The NHTIC opened in August of 2002. This educational, family, historical attraction is well worth a visit by all Americans and those seeking to understand the American Culture.

Open daily, 8AM-7PM, April 1 - October 31. Open Tuesday-Saturday, 9AM-4:30 PM, November - March. There is a fee for entrance.

Location: 1501 North Poplar Street, Casper Wyoming 82601 Telephone 307-261-7700
