Tuesday Night Talks

The Pony Express Museum is preparing for its 22nd year of presenting Tuesday Night Talks (TNT).  The Program has become a popular, educational, in-person event for the community in January and February through the years.  Much like other annual get-togethers in 2020, COVID is changing up our 2021 TNT program.  This year we are offering a virtual event, revisiting crowd favorites of the past five years specially selected by our TNT Chairman Joe Houts.  Just as in the past, the audience may hear authors, historians, and lecturers on a wide range of topics.  Instead of visiting the museum in person, the audience may view any or all of the six speakers on our website at their convenience in the comfort of their homes.  This format allows us to share these special events with the world, for the first time in its history!

Please visit our website for information and updates on when to look for these classic sessions.  We look forward to all getting together again in 2022 to resume our normal format.  In the interim, please come see us at the museum to revisit favorite exhibits and look for new, exciting additions.

Please contact Cindy Daffron via phone or email should you have any questions.  Enjoy!
