  • I'm surprised this level of museum exists as a local one, I've been to many museums and this is definately comparable to the state museum in Cheyenne, if not better. They provide an amazing and elaborate demonstration of local history and even bothered to present how local history is connected to or reflect the American history as a whole. Think of it, how many museums can do that? You will get a glimpse of what early pioneer life was like, including the bar culture, barber shop, homes, jails, and even coal mines. I would go back to Thermopolis just to visit this museum again.
  • These people have really dedicated themselves to improve this museum. Great displays!!! Nice People working there.
  • This is an amazing museum with Indian artifacts, rocks & minerals, the famous "Hole-in-the-Wall" bar and a huge display of early days in Hot Springs County. My favorite display item is the carriage which was used in the Yellowstone National Park way back in the day. Well worth the visit!
