A stop along Hwy 40 between Hayden and Craig, CO. Metal building full of collectables by Mr. Wyman. Was told by staff he has been collecting over 60 yrs. Items include vehicles, clothing, kitchen items and even stuffed/mounted animals. Don't miss the outside items, including JR, the fully grown moose. He enjoys scratching his antlers on the fence. It's amazing... More

We almost didn't stop, but so glad we did. The staff and family are very friendly and informative. There are many, many, many well display collections. If you like to browse and not like crowds, you will love it. My husband and I were lucky enough to be joined by Mr Wyman and were treated to many fun facts on... More

Cost - donation. The day that we visited I didn't get the feel that this was a 'living history museum'. I usually associate living history with dressed up tour guides, or re-enactors that you can observe doing things that were done in the time periods that the museum represents - cooking on a wood stove, making horse shoes etc. So...

The Wyman Museum is a great look back into the history of the old west and Craig Colorado. They have a live bull elk, an authentic old western general store and many insights into life in rural America in the late 19th century and early 29th century

I was lucky enough to get a tour from the owner himself. His enthusiasm was infectious. I am a museum director and understand that some things are not being done utilizing best practices in our industry. However, I appreciated the experience.

The other reviewers have done a great job telling about this place. It is amazing - with many, many things you have not seen before. I spotted it from the highway because of the tank, the huge truck they use in strip mines, and the airplane sitting outside. When we arrived we went inside and met Benna who gave us... More

This is the kind of museum we love. Very few velvet ropes to keep you away from the exhibits. Many times grandma remembers using the utensils at Great Grandma's house. Always something new to be seen, or something old to be seen in a different light. The kids still mourn the passing of Cylde but love Jr. Now too and... More

A typical small town museum, but with a good touch of local and Western early days history, along with some interesting outdoor exhibits.

This place is not to be missed, if you do nothing else in the area, go here. Even if you are passing through, you should stop by. There isn't much supervision/help there, it's a do it yourself kind of place. There are a lot of historical items to be viewed. Old farm equipment, old Colorado license plates, and a bunch... More

We went on a drive from Steamboat and spotted this sign that said Museum on the side of the road. Thought well we better check this big tin building out. We are so happy we did. Not only do they have a real live elk for the kids to see, but inside they have a collection of historical items from... More
