Community Room

In the mid-1800s, small towns typically had some common place where the community members gathered for important social events or meetings. Here at the Pony Express National Museum we invite you to gather with family, friends, or colleagues in our Community Room.


The Community Room is available during the hours between 8 a.m. and midnight, except for most major holidays when the museum is closed for business. Rates vary depending on rental times but range between $30 and $85 per hour. Security deposits are required for evening rentals. For more information call the Pony Express National Museum.
