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.

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
