Free entry!!! Wow, what a great museum that has a little bit of everything about Wyoming history! Their children's hands on area is very neat! Please note it's cold inside the museum in order to preserve artifacts. Dress warmly if you get cold easily!

Small but nicely curated museum, worth 90 minutes of your time, particularly since admission is free. We enjoyed the fossils, Native American artifacts and the current dinosaur art exhibit. My children liked the hands-on area.

My kids loved this place. There was even a man at the desk as soon as you walk in to your right he told use the best way to Go through the museum And some history of the museum. + The man at the desk had a worksheet for kids to find stuff around the museum.

Great display of state history. I especially loved the history of Wyoming tourism. Pressed pennies were a plus. Not to mention the largest crosswalk sign I have ever seen out front.

This is a FREE museum (donations accepted) that rivals any paid museum. It's a great way to gain a broad understanding of Wyoming's history. Located walking distance to the state capitol and includes a detailed exhibit about the capitol, which was nice since the capitol is currently closed for renovation.
