Museums, trains, and bears….oh my! We’re not in Kansas, but there’s no place like a good old fashioned Trading Post!
First of all, Clarks Trading post is filled to the brim with fascinating museums. There is an Americana museum filled with Americana like early house hold items and gas engines, an old 1884 Fire Station which is very cool for those kids who love trucks and fire fighters, a compelling Clark History museum, Avery’s Garage which is a neat replica of an old antique gas station, and the Florence Murray Museum.
Once you are museum’d out, there is a fun climbing tower which is similar to rock climbing where you can try to get to the top using great balance and skill, the gravity defying Merlin’s Mystical Mansion (which you shouldn’t enter if you suffer from claustrophobia, motion sickness, epilepsy or if you’re afraid of the dark!), and a 450 feet of Segway track to burn some Segway rubber on.
All aboard for the While Mountain Central Railroad! Choo Choo! You can enjoy a 25 minute train ride with a real wood burning, steam powered locomotive! Pretty cool! There is a VERY bendy Chinese Acrobatic Troupe who will amaze you at the things they can do, and of course the always popular bear show! Kids can see these gorgeous creatures up close during the 30 minute educational and entertaining performance.
We haven’t even listed everything there is to see and do… We want to leave some things as a surprise!
