Oregon Trail Interpretive Center
Our first stop in Oregon was the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center in Baker City. It was very interesting and added some additional information as to what life on the frontier must have been like. We had just seen many of the places the travelers saw on their journey, and the Interpretive Center museum information kinda filled in the gaps of what life on the trail was like . . . the hardships, deaths, decisions and the consequences and rewards of those decisions.
Walking through the museum takes a person through the journey experienced by the Old Oregon Trail Travelers starting in Missouri and ending in Oregon. There are many interesting and informative things to see and read while walking the trail through the museum. This way only takes about an hour or two instead of 4 to 6 months! Below are some of the artwork displayed in the museum.
