There is so much cool information about Wyoming at this museum! There's something for everyone at this museum! From modern day mining to prehistoric fossils, there is something new around every corner. If you find yourself in Cheyenne, you might as well stop here and learn a lot of cool things about the great state of Wyoming.

My family loves history, and wanted to learn more about Wyoming. This museum is a perfect lace to visit, has something for everyone (on multiple levels), and didn't disappoint! The exhibits are all we labeled, and may be viewed up close. The staff are extremely helpful. And, admission was free! A must place to stop when you visit Cheyenne.

This is not a museum that will take all day to walk through, but it had more than we thought it would! It did a great job of walking us through the history of Wyoming. Not all of the museum is interactive, but there is a hands on section where you can dress up in different outfits that people in... More

Visited and found a penny elongater. Needed change and the lady gave it to me and gave a penny to me. I did my coin and then went out to the car and brought back my state quarter (North Dakota) and presented it to her for her being so nice. (Gave her cent back also) Liked the sheep herder wagon...

We took our grandchildren to the museum, they really enjoyed it as well as us. The layout was great, the staff was super. Would recommend, there is no cost that is super with large families, there is a donation box. It is certainly worth dropping a donation as it is a very nice museum and has some really neat history...

This modest-sized museum has a bit of everything - natural history, cultural history, wildlife, minerals, the "old West", and when we visited it even had a pretty nice "Governor's" fine art show going on in the lobby. There also was a larger "temporary" exibit linking art and nature upstairs. It is located in the downtown complex of state government buildings... More

My nephew and I took his kids (girl 10, boy 8) here on a Spring Break trip through the western states. The museum was laid out in a very accessible way and the staff was very welcoming. There were a lot of things to engage the kids. When we entered, the attendant gave each of them a map showing items... More

I highly recommend going to the Wyoming State Museum! Everyone is different, but I suggest at least 2-3 hours to cover the entire museum, gift shop, and talking to the staff. The staff was very pleasant and nice! The cost is free, but donations are accepted. I highly recommend donating. The environment was very conducive to preserving the displays, antiques,... More

This is our "Go-To" Steakhouse in the Cheyenne area. The food is served hot and just the way you ordered it. The steaks are done to perfection, and we love the fresh veggies that are offered as sides. The Outback offers specialty drinks during the year, along with a great Happy Hour menu. The coconut shrimp are delicious, as are... More

Excellent displays of Wyoming history and people that settled the state. Art work and graphics of very high quality. Easy to view all areas in comfort.
