Visit: Great Platte River Road Archway Monument

In the Archway's historical exhibit, you’ll walk with the pioneers over the Oregon Trail. Watch a rider make a quick stop to switch horses at a Pony Express Station. Hear Mark Twain’s account of a cross-country stage coach trip. Relive the competition that created the first Transcontinental Railroad, and visit a travelers’ campground to hear stories of life on “America’s Main Street,” the Lincoln Highway.  All this history, and more, happened right here on the Great Platte River Road in Nebraska.  Using life-size figures in elaborate scenic displays and personal audio tour devices, the Archway tells an inspiring American story of discovery, innovation and adventure.
Travelers on today’s I-80 are following in the footsteps of the pioneers who headed down the Oregon Trail in the 1840s. The means of transportation have changed, but the route has stayed pretty much the same.  We are still following the Great Platte River Road across Nebraska on the road to adventure in America.
The admission price applies to the historic exhibit only.  Other amenities on the Archway campus are accessible at no charge.
