  • I loved this Museum when I was kid and I still like to visit occasionally to see new exhibits on display. There's a lot to learn in there because the amount of Wyoming history in there is amazing. Schools from all over the state send kids on field trips to this Museum. I hope you totally enjoy this Museum, I know I have
  • Best free Museum I've been to. This little 2 story museum gives paid museums a run for its money definitely worth the stop! Gives you a plethora of information on the area dating all the way back to the dinosaur Era. Would love to go back!
  • The museum is free, which in and of itself deserves a few starts, but then they have great facilities for kids. My son loves dinosaurs right now and he could not get enough of the large dinosaur skeleton. Great place.
  • Really neat museum with so much Wyoming history to share. Nice gift shop too. FREE admission.
  • Very informative museum. Love to learn about new cities I'm visiting. This museum truly captures the spirit and history of this important mid-western city.
