We showed up here looking for something to do while it was raining! It was a pleasant surprise! It was free! It was very informative and enjoyable. People were accommodating! Facilities were clean.

Took my nephews here to check out the museum. They do an excellent job if informing about Wyoming and the mant people who have helped to create the state to what it is today. The scavenger hunt makes it more interactive for children.

Donation-based museum with excellent displays! I learned so much about Wyoming's history, ranging from the time of the dinosaurs to modern times! I would highly recommend it. There was plenty of free street parking outside.
