The Center is a fun way to learn history. We took our Granddaughter to see it when she was in 4th grade and learning about WY history, We all immensely enjoyed the tour and hands-on exhibits. Definitely a place to visit for all ages.

We visited here after enjoying a Historic Trails West Wagon trip. It is a modern museum with a fun, interactive theme. And all for the price of a donation.

We went and had a great time, one of the projectors was broke so it was free. They had really good displays and a treadmill that told how fast you had to walk with your cart to beat the winter snow.

This is an awesome place to learn about the people who passed through or stayed in Casper. And the best thing? it's interactive so whether you have children with you or not there's something for everyone!

As a historian, I like to visit museums that I haven't been to, and I'm very glad we went to this one! We were greeted at the door by a staff member, who gave us a quick run down on what we would see, and...More

This would be a stop along a 9 hr drive. So I will not have much time. Is the stop still worth it?

Yes there is a short video that is informative. You also can "ride" in a wagon that can give you the feel of what the ride was like. The exhibit is laid out in such a way that you can spend as much time as you like. Not far... More
