great place for one hour visit

Great small museum. Very pleasant staff on hand if you have any question. You can walk from here to the state capitol. And it's all free!

We only spent a few hours in Cheyenne on a day trip from Colorado Springs. We visited the Historic Governors' House, and the Wyoming State Museum. This place was really very interesting. I enjoyed very much learning about the history of the state and the natural resources it contains. Until visiting, I really knew nothing about this square state in... More

Drove from Boulder, CO to Cheyenne for the day. Great little town with a lot of historical things that are free! I was impressed with the State Museum there, the capitol building is beautiful, and there are free horse drawn carriage rides. I also learned that Wyoming was THE first state to grant women the right to vote - Yea... More

The Wyoming State museum is pretty small. It is nice, just small. There is a nice gift store, with many locally made items. The staff was really nice.

Very nice museum near the capital building. Good exhibits of settlement of Wyoming, dinosaurs, Indian heritage, oil/coal/gas exploration, etc etc. Modern building and the exhibits are well-laid out and informative. And - it is free! Well worth an hour if you are in Cheyenne

A great stop to make to learn more about WY History. Located across from the Capitol this museum offers interactive rooms for the kids and a treasure of history for the others in your group. There is a gift shop and very friendly volunteers to assist you.

Interesting Wyoming history in this mid size museum. Takes about 1-2 hours and it's free. Worth the time to enjoy.

Came away with a good idea of what Wyoming has. I found the coal and soda mining interesting as well as the geological displays.
