Two floors, some interactive, cell phone guide if you want/have. History of Wyoming, lots of dinosaurs, indians, everyday life thru the years. Beautiful bead work, Indian implements, good cross section of life up until now. Good gift shop and try to fidure out the mystery item.

I generally liked it. It's spacious and covers all of Wyoming, but the exhibits felt too cluttered in text and outdated. It wasn't bad, but for Wyoming, I was hoping to see more cowboys and outlaws. Good way to kill time though, and you can't beat free.

Stopped in here on a whim after touring the capitol and was pleasantly surprised by the amount and quality of the displays. They have quite a diversity of content from dinosaurs to saddles. Very solid museum and free admission is always nice.

The museum is a must see and for a small area has an amazing cross section of the history of the state .the displays are very well done with no entry fee for visitors .Allow two hours to enjoy all that is available to read and peruse.

After visiting, we didn't look at each other and say, "Wow, that was cool." It was OK. There were some interesting exhibits that were oriented to history of Wyoming. There wasn't, however, an ongoing theme. It would have been nice to have a lot more information about a few things rather than a tiny bit of information about a lot... More

It covers the history of the state. Who doesn't love history?! I like the displays and the settings for the history to tell of Wyoming stories.
