National Historic Trails Interpretive Center

The National Historic Trails Interpretive Center is operated by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), U.S. Department of Interior. We are a public-private partnership between the BLM, the National Historic Trails Center Foundation, and the City of Casper, Wyoming.  

The Trails Center commemorates Native American history, early explorers, and the travel corridor of the Oregon, Mormon, California, and Pony Express trails, as well as the Bridger and Bozeman trails through hands-on, interactive exhibits, multi-media programs, and virtual education opportunities.  

Virtual interpretive programming and visits to the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center are free!  

The Mission of the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center: 

The NHTIC interprets the significant role of the area’s historic trails in the history of the U.S. by providing exceptional visitor, educational, and volunteer programs.  NHTIC staff seeks to promote public understanding of both America’s western native cultures and historic westward expansion while highlighting the BLM’s role as active stewards of public lands.
