The diorama theater at the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center on the edge of Casper, Wyoming, showcases figures representing those who traveled the western trails: Native Americans, explorers and mountain men, the thousands of emigrants who traveled west and Pony Express riders.  An 18-minute multi-media program, Footsteps to the West, centering on the diorama, is presented on a regular basis through the day.

      It was pretty interesting. Sometimes, at some of the museums we visit, there’s not just enough time to see everything.
