In celebration of the Great Platte River Road that led gold seekers, missionaries and settlers through Nebraska, the Archway Monument takes visitors on a journey through 170 years. Spanning I-80 with cars whizzing by underneath, the two-floor structure makes for a great educational stop. From the Oregon and Mormon Trail eras and the competition between the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads, all the way to the age of cars, take it in with interactive audio, dioramas, murals and mannequins of those who lived in and passed through the Great Plains.
