  • Beautiful place and if you like history, this place is it. Knowledgeable staff and very friendly. You can walk your dog's around but they can't go in the buildings, which is completely understandable. Wonderful Museum!!!
  • Very friendly personal tour of the grounds and buildings. Museum is medium sized, but many interesting artifacts from the wild west and local flavor. Many period buildings to tour to experience history and antiques from that era. Worth the trip!
  • They are super nice. They have tours outside of all the old buildings. They have things almost every weekend during the summer. The mountain man rendezvous the third weekend in July is awsome.
  • Wonderful Wyoming History! I am so glad this small community supports this museum.
  • We were @ GEM for our son's wedding. The wonderful staff provided excellent accommodations for the wedding party. The setting was perfect. Everyone enjoyed the museum so much.
