About Us

An interactive adventure, the Great Platte River Road Archway will transport you back to an era when covered wagons, buffalo, hand-pulled carts, and trains first criss-crossed the prairie! The Archway features film, computer graphics, life-size dioramas, re-enactors, classic cars and more to document over 150 years of transporation and communication across America.

The experience at The Archway is truly one-of-a-kind, and will provide the words and faces of many that lived and died on their way westward. Learn more about this unique museum experience:
