Come to the NFTM to prepare for your epic 6 month journey to Oregon! Using a special trail guide provided at the front desk you will learn about what route you will take, investigate art to discover something about the “jumping off towns,” identify items in the General Store and finally pack a wagon with a Museum Educator as your guide! This is a wonderful way for families to discover a part of the history of westward expansion.
